AUBURN, Ala. – Abigail Farrar, Ashlynn Sullivan and Conner Pruitt will all trek north to Knoxville, Tennessee for the 2024 US Olympic Team Diving Trials, June 17-23, at the Allan Jones Aquatic Center.  

Farrar and Sullivan will each compete in the women’s platform while Pruitt will test his fate on the men’s 3-meter. Prelims for both events begin on Friday, June 21. Live coverage of the event can be found on Peacock and NBC throughout the week. 

Pruitt begins his second attempt to qualify for the US Olympic Team after previously earning his way to Trials in 2021. Both Sullivan and Farrar are making their debut at the event. 

Under the guidance of first-year head coach John Fox, Farrar and Sullivan reached new heights throughout the 2023-24 campaign. Sullivan captured two top-10 dives in program history, moving to eighth in the 1-meter (292.90) and ninth in the 3-meter (330.60), and secured her first bronze medal on the platform at the SEC Championships back in February. She would keep the momentum going at Zones, earning her first trip to the NCAA Championships.

Farrar delivered similar success, jumping to fourth all-time on the Platform (289.60) at Zones and also qualified for her first NCAA Championships. 

The top 18 scores after prelims will advance to the semifinals and the top 12 after semis will dive in finals. At the conclusion of the finals, the top one or two finishers by cumulative scores (semifinals and finals) will earn a spot on the US Olympic Team, provided one or two entry positions are qualified.
