Brothers Troy and Justin Dumais of Ventura took the top two places in the three-meter springboard event Saturday at the National Diving Championships in Dallas.
Troy's victory came a day after he won the one-meter springboard and Justin's runner-up finish made them the first brothers in U.S. diving history to finish 1-2 in the national championships.
If Troy, a 17-year-old senior-to-be at Buena High, wins the platform final today, he would be the first man to win all three events at the national championships since four-time Olympic gold medalist Greg Louganis in 1988.
