Missouri diver Bonuchi wins second title at SEC Championships

Friday, February 22, 2013 | 8:37 a.m. CST

Missouri junior diver David Bonuchi added a second Southeastern Conference title to his collection Thursday, winning the men's 3-meter event at the SEC Swimming and Diving Championships in College Station, Texas.

Bonuchi, who also won the 1-meter event on Tuesday, finished the 3-meter competition with a score of 441.95, more than 36 points ahead of the second-place finisher. It was a season-high score for Bonuchi.

The 3-meter victory is not Bonuchi's first, however. He won the conference championship in the same event at the Big 12 Championships last year.

Bonuchi will dive on the platform Saturday in hopes of becoming the fourth diver in SEC history to sweep all three events at the conference tournament.

Another Tiger making news at the SEC Swimming and Diving Championships was swimmer Logan Mosley. The junior swam the 100-meter fly in 47.02 seconds to break his own school record. The time earned him a third-place finish in the consolation heat.

The SEC Championships will conclude in College Station, Texas, on Friday.
