LOS ANGELES - UC Davis sophomore Audrey DeNeffe finished 12th on the platform with a total of 387.20, pacing the Aggies' efforts on the final day of the Bruin Diving Invitational hosted by UCLA at the Spieker Aquatics Center on Sunday morning in Los Angeles.

DeNeffe, who made her second final of the weekend after finishing 18th in the finals of the 1-meter, finished 13th during the preliminary round with a score of 199.25 -- her second-highest score of the season behind only her school record 210.65 set at the Mizzou Invitational back on Nov. 23. Her 187.95 over her final six dives is also the third-highest score in the event by an Aggie in 2013-14.

Sophomore Lucy Lafranchise, who finished 14th in the finals of the 1-meter on Friday, finished 23rd in the platform prelims with a score of 162.60.
