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.”
