AUSTIN, Texas – Junior diver Mike Mosca became the first Harvard All-American since 2012 on Friday, placing 13th on the 3-meter dive at the 2014 NCAA Men's Swimming and Diving Championships. Aside from Mosca's success, the Crimson fared well in the 800 freestyle relay, taking home a 25th place finish.

Mosca, who racked up 367.70 points early on in the day during prelims, dove for a combined score of 392.65 in the consolation finals to take home the 13th position. He becomes the first Crimson diver to collect All-America status since Craig Narveson '94 did so in 1992.

Mosca finishes his junior season as the Ivy League Champion in both the 1- and 3-meter dives and the Karl B. Michael High Point Diver of the Meet on top of being named an All-American.

Between the lanes, Jacob Luna, Griffin Schumacher, Jack Manchester and Danny Crigler competed in the lengthy 800 freestyle relay. The Crimson quartet clocked in at 6:30.65 for a 25th place finish in the competitive event. With the 200 freestyle, 800 freestyle and 400 medley relays complete, Harvard swimmers will have one more event on Saturday with the 400 freestyle relay.
