MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – LSU swimmer Brooks Curry and LSU diver Adrian Abadia closed day three of the 2023 NCAA Championships Friday with two more All-American honors after top-16 finishes in the 200-yard freestyle and three-meter diving events inside the Jean K. Freeman Aquatic Center.

During the morning session, Abadia placed 15th with a score of 376.70. He earned his second career All-American honor.
