PITTSBURGH - Freshman Nick Nemetz got Notre Dame off to a great start at the 2012 BIG EAST Conference Men's Swimming and Diving Championships by winning the individual title off the 3-meter board Friday evening at Trees Pool.
Nemetz posted a 325.15 off the high board to earn the title while also becoming the third different Irish diver in as many seasons to win the event. Nathan Geary posted meet-high honors in 2011 as Wes Villaflor did so in 2010. Even more, Nemetz is the only first-year diver in Notre Dame history to win a league crown.
Notre Dame shelved 60 points on the opening day of the league meet. Pittsburgh (42) is second and Louisville (12) is third.
