Grayson is a member of the JO 3 Hot Shots Group and has been diving competitively for the past four years. Grayson had an impressive season last year, competing in the finals for two events at the Speedo Junior National Championships, however, had been plagued with an ankle injury this past fall. Despite her ankle, Grayson continued to work hard at practices and earned a place on the 2012 East National Team. At East Nationals, Grayson dominated her competition winning both the 11 & under girls 1-meter and 3-meter events. This was Grayson’s first set of titles, automatically qualifying her for the Speedo Junior National Championships this summer.
Grayson was chosen as this month’s diver not only for her most recent performances but also for her determination and perseverance through an ankle injury.
Our first in house diving meet with Bryan and Coach K will be Saturday, May 26th at 10am. The meet should run until around noon followed by the pizza party so, plan on being there until 1pm. We understand this is Memorial Day weekend however with our busy schedules over the past few months and the upcoming summer this is the only time we had free.
All divers need to report to the pool at 9:30am to stretch and select their dives with their teammates. For those of you who have not participated in an in house diving, it is a relaxed competition where divers are put into mini teams. It is a lot of fun and a great way to get to know your fellow teammates! Following the meet we will be having a pizza party sponsored by the team. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
