“Honestly, I’m glad I got the win and competed against the best,” Tucker told the Aggies official website afterward. “Me and my teammates all worked hard for this, and I came out with the win. I’m happy and thankful for that. The mindset was to score as many points as possible, we wanted to go 1-2-3-4. It really didn’t matter which one of us won first place, we knew if we gave it our all we would be happy with each other.”
Texas A&M track and field coach Pat Henry added: “I’ve told Tucker you can’t get there faster diving, just run through and you’ll be fine. He thought he was a swim team guy today.”
