The men's men's three-meter had Richard Eberle (307.20) and Metcalf (283.65) go second-third in the event.
The teams made the return trip back north of the border to compete in the platform event. There, Metcalf scored a 258.70 to win while Eberle was right behind at 248.65. On the women's side, Eissinger had UND's top score at 156.45 for sixth place.
