FEDERAL WAY, Wash. - Kristian Ipsen fell short of taking his third title in as many days with a second-place finish in the platform event Saturday during the 2013 Pac-12 Conference Men's Diving Championships. Ipsen won the 1- and 3-meter events earlier in the week at the King County Aquatic Center.
For his efforts, Ipsen, the 2012 Pac-12 Diving Newcomer of the Year, was named the 2013 Pac-12 Championships Diver of the Meet.
Ipsen was fourth after the prelims with a 344.80, over 50 points behind first-place Harrison Jones (395.10) of Arizona State.
The sophomore roared back with a 398.40 in the finals, falling just 1.50 points short of first-place Rafael Quintero. The Arizona diver outlasted Ipsen with a 399.90.
The swimming portion of the championships begins Sunday with live results available at GoStanford.com.
