Bamforth Records Top 16 Finish at NCAA Championships

(INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.) - Carnegie Mellon University junior Gabe Bamforth (Cambridge, Mass./CRLS) kicked off the 2018 NCAA Division III Swimming and Diving Championships for the men's swimming and diving team on Wednesday with a finish in the consolation finals of 3-meter diving.

Bamforth placed 13th overall to earn four points for the Tartans after collecting 457.55 points.. The top 16 finish marked the third of his career, as he was 16th in the 3-meter as a freshman and eighth in the 1-meter as a sophomore.

The Tartans will next be in action on Friday when Bamforth competes in the 1-meter diving event and junior Winston Chu (Warren, N.J./Saint Peter's Prep) swims the 100-yard breaststroke.
