Although the Hand Tiger’s  diver Teddy Zeng received extremely high (near perfect) scores for the execution of every dive he performed, Hand came up 6 points shy of a victory. [It was charming how Zeng stayed true to his heritage and stood at the edge of the pool and bowed after his scores were revealed]

The Spartans swimmers were exceptional in so many other events and earned a 96-90 victory.
