Dragon Diver Commits to Duke

Class 6A defending state diving champion Nathaniel Hernandez has verbally committed to dive for Duke University beginning in the fall of 2016.

Hernandez (pictured center) is a senior at Carroll, where in addition to winning the 2015 Texas UIL 6A State Meet title, he was named 2014-15 NISCA/Speedo Boys High School Diving National Champion for the 2014-15 school year.

Hernandez dives for GC Divers, a club based in the DFW. He competed at ATT Nationals this past summer in 1-meter, 3-meter and platform diving, picking up a seventh place in 16-18 Boys 1m J.O and a fourth in 16-18 Boys Platform J.O.

“I am so excited to join the Duke swim/dive family,” Hernandez said. “The excellent quality of academics, combined with the ever-increasing improvement of the program, has led me to this decision.. ..I can’t wait to be a Blue Devil.”
