In the platform competition, Bord claimed his second bronze medal, while Max Burnell was fourth, Matthams was fifth and Tibbatts was sixth, while Gordon was seventh in the girls’ event and Alridge

On day two, Halls earned a top-10 spot in the women’s 1m by taking ninth place.

Burnell was fifth in the 1m springboard, with Bord, Tibbatts and Williams also in the top 10.

Cambridge were third in the overall team trophy standings, and head coach Alice Clarke said: “It was fantastic to see the divers taking part in competition and placing so well in tough events.
