Nel was a nine-time All-American from 2009-12 and was a two-time NCAA runner-up, while Patrick was five-time All-American from 2009-12 and NCAA Champion on the three-meter board in 2012.
At the Aussie Trials, Nel grabbed the victory in the three-meter dive with a score of 463.75 after posting a lifetime best score of 478.80 in the semifinals. Patrick placed second on the one-meter (274.30) and third on the three-meter board (314.10).
