Matthew Edkins made it a clean sweep of the diving events at the Don Richards Invitational at RIT on Saturday, running away with the 1-meter diving competition a day after winning off the 3-meter board on Friday.

Edkins posted an 11-dive score of 513.70, easily eclipsing the NCAA qualifying mark of 425 to win the event by nearly 75 points.

The Saints finished sixth in the team standings with 359 points. Host RIT easily won the team title with 1,215 points.

Robert Burke also had an impressive day in the pool, finishing third in the 400-yard individual medley and fifth in the 200 backstroke. Senior captain Jack Quinn (pictured above) added a fourth in the 1,650 freestyle, dropping nearly five seconds off his personal best time, and a sixth in the 400 IM, while Isaac Brinkman was fourth in the 200 butterfly.
