Missouri diver Loren Figueroa earned her third career All-American honor with a fifth-place finish on the 1-meter springboard at the 2013 NCAA women's swimming and diving championships.

Figueroa posted a season-high 327.55 in the finals. Figueroa earned two All-American honors in 2011 with a second-place finish on the 1-meter and a fourteenth place finish on the 3-meter.

All-American honors are given to individual competitors and relay teams who qualify for the championship round (top eight). Honorable mentions are given to those who qualify for the consolation final (nine through 16).

Two Missouri relay teams also earned All-American honorable mentions. In the 200 free relay event, Cassie Cunningham, Danielle Barbiea, Emily Doucette and Anna Patterson placed fourth in the consolation final with a time of 1:30.16.

In the 400 medley relay, Dominique Bouchard, Amanda Masters, Cunningham and Barbiea combined to take sixth place in the consolation final with a time of 3:35.50.

Cunningham was also the only individual swimmer to compete in any events. She swam a 22.77 in the 50-free and finished No. 39. 

Overall the Tigers are currently No. 12 after registering 30 team points.

The second day of competition will begin at 11 a.m. Friday.
