His Olympic 10-meter syncho partner, Nick McCrory of Chapel Hill, N.C., was second with 930.25. Boudia and McCrory are competing on 3-meter at nationals for the first time since 2010.
Four-time Olympian Troy Dumais of Ventura, Calif., was third at 886.40. Sam Dorman of Tempe, Ariz., who had the highest single-dive score of the day with 100.70 points on his front 4½ tuck in the semifinals, was fourth at 879.60.
