The Old Orchard Dive Team competed in the first meet of the season on Sunday, June 30th, which was continued on Monday, July 1 after a weather delay. All of our competing divers performed great! We had 3 kids who qualified for the tri-county championship; two in the 10-11 age group, and one in the 12-13 year old age group.
Chris Benson overcame an accident in the second round of dives to come back strong, and post a qualifying score to advance. JT Hinds not only qualified, but placed second in his age group with an outstanding score of 123.25 (he didn’t even need his last dive to qualify). And Garrett Kerr competed on Monday evening after a 30 hour weather delay to qualify for the tri-county championships in the 12-13 year-old age group.
Our next meet will be this Sunday beginning at 8:00 a.m. at the Haddon Glen swim club. We will have even more divers compete this week, so come and support all of our outstanding divers!
