First Dive Meet of the Year a Success!!
8/31/2016

The PCDS divers did fantastic in their first meet of the year.  It was the first high school meet for freshman Samantha Stein and Sydney Hott, and for sophomore Matt Peterson.  Samantha dominated the girls event with a fantastic score of 219.70.  On the boys side, it was a close competition with Evan inching out Jem for first place.  Diver of the meet was Sydney Hott for overcoming her fears and with only 4 months in the sport, broke 100 for her first meet ever.

After the meet, Rio Olympic silver medalist, Sam Dorman,  came to the pool and took pictures with the team (attached) and answered questions about diving, Olympics, Rio, and life after college and the Olympics.  The kids got to wear his medal and take pictures with him.  It was a thrill for all the kids and parents.
