Please Visit my Meet Control website link for recent scores and meets

After only diving for the first time in July 2017, within that short time frame of 4 months I qualified for state high school championships and placed 15th. Shortly after highschool season I decided to Join USA diving and stepped on a 3 meter my first time in December. In 4 months I have managed to get a college 3M list...not super pretty yet but having fun and just qualfied for Zones in Region 7 USA diving Championships. Having so much fun with this sport and love being the under dog at these big meets!

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

I was a gymnast for 12 years and retired my 8th grade year after deciding gymnastics just wasn’t the sport that was going to get me where I wanted to be. Fast forward to my junior year in high school, my school finally got a pool with a diving board and started a diving team. After working with Deidre Freeman (a three-time conference champion, All-State, All-District, All-Conference, 2013 U.S. national champion on the 3m board, and 4th placer finisher in the synchronized event and 18th in the 3-meter in the 2012 US Olympic Trials), and Mike Retelsdorf, I have fallen in love with the sport of diving and would love to continue to compete and expand my knowledge and diving abilities in college!
