Knapton competed in the 3-meter dive and finished 22nd in the preliminaries with a score of 307.60. Knapton needed a top-16 finish to advance to the finals.

Knapton’s weekend isn’t over though, as the Omaha native will compete in the platform dive on Saturday. Knapton earned All-America honors last season with a fourth-place finish in the platform competition.
