Vazquez Bas Wins on Platform to Conclude Auburn Diving Invitational

AUBURN, ALA. – LSU divers Manny Vazquez Bas and Dakota Hurbis finished in first and ninth place on men’s platform with scores of 387.40 and 275.50 on the final day of the Auburn Diving Invitational. This is the second time this season Vazquez Bas earned the top spot on platform, also doing so at the 2019 Art Adamson Invitational at Texas A&M. His score today of 387.40 surpassed his season’s best score for men’s platform, which he set at the Art Adamson, by over 30 points. 

 “I’m happy for Manny and for his performance on the final day of competition” said LSU head diving coach Doug Shaffer. “We’ve been making really good progress on platform and the experience to dive at Auburn, which is where the SEC Championships will be in 2020, is invaluable for our preparation.” 

The Auburn Diving Invitational concludes the 2019 half of the season for LSU. The Tigers will be back in action on January 3, 2020 at the Tennessee Diving Invitational, beginning the second half of the season.
