John Conner, a product of Falling Rock, W.Va., was the first member of Duke's swimming and diving program to earn All-America honors. A national interscholastic diving champion as a high school senior, Conner enjoyed a sensational diving career with the Blue Devils.

As a freshman, Conner suffered only two losses, one on the low boards and one on the high. The next year he was the undefeated Southern Conference champion in both the one-meter and three-meter events and went on to the NCAA meet. He placed fourth nationally to earn All-America honors on the one-meter board and collected honorable mention All-America laurels in the three-meter event.

Conner repeated as conference champion in both 1950 and 1951 and was All-America on both low and high boards in 1950 with an eighth place finish in the one-meter and a ninth place finish in the three-meter event.
