“I did pretty good, but I think that I can still improve a lot,” Crilly said.

The invitational consisted of four rounds, each with divers performing various dives for the panel of five judges.

“I’m off about 10 points [from my personal record] since this event had a higher degree of difficulty,” Crilly said. “My dives were a lot harder than last time I competed, so the points were a little off.”
