HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. – After qualifying in the 3-meter diving event at the 2017 USA Diving National Preliminary Zone A Championships on Thursday, Georgia Tech diver Matt Casillas earned a spot at the senior nationals diving event in the 1-meter dive on Saturday at the preliminary meet in Huntersville, N.C.
