COLUMBIA — Missouri diver David Bonuchi earned the third All-America honor of his career when he finished in sixth place on the 1-meter dive at the 2012 NCAA Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships in Seattle, Wash.

The sophomore started the day with a preliminary score of 377.70 to advance to the evening’s finals completion. In the night session, he scored 376.35 points to claim sixth place, just .05 points behind the fifth-place finisher.

Bonuchi, who earned two All-America honors last year when he placed fourth on the platform and eighth on the 3-meter, will compete in the 3-meter competition Friday and the platform on Saturday.

Additionally, freshman Eegan Groome placed in 32nd place in the 500 freestyle with a time of 4:21.88 in his first NCAA Championships appearance.
