Nate Smith scored 638.20 in the 3-meter dive during the weekend, helping Navy earn third place at the Eastern Swimming and Diving Championship in Cambridge, Mass., the Midshipmen's best finish since 1969.

Smith broke the 3-meter school record and a 16-year-old pool record held by Olympian Greg Louganis. He has won the 1- and 3-meter events an unprecedented four straight years.

UMBC's men and women placed second to Connecticut at the ECAC championships Saturday night at Glouchester (N.J.) Community College. David Miller, Mike Gibeau, Chad Cradock and Ingrid Kilpe were double winners.
