This is for the 3rd straight year that Noah Miller would dive at Nebraska state meet. The senior from the Gering High School accomplished that feat by registering an automatic state qualifying grade in finishing 1st at Twin City Invitational at Splash Arena in Scottsbluff earlier on Friday.
Miller ended on top of the eleven dive meet along with a score of 316.66. Coach Debbie Post stated that he was just shy of qualifying previous week at the big meet in Cheyenne and she think this takes a big weight off his shoulders. She is very happy and encouraged for him.
Noah was joined in Top Ten by 2 other Seacats – Court Muhr was tenth with a 183.05 score and Devan Stooksbury ended 8th with 216.85 score. Debbie stated that problem with Splash Arena’s everyday diving board triggered for some tense times in practice across the week, but the scope to contend at home was welcoming for Seacat divers.
Debbie stated that this was really nice because it is a familiar setting. They did have some problem with their board earlier this week and he had to order some parts for it. Therefore, they had to rehearse on the other board that was a bit strange for them. The parts came in and the board that they generally work on was a little bit stiffer than they were used to. She believes that that had all of them a little bit concerned, but competing at a familiar pool and not having to travel was all a plus.
On the other hand, the diving championship for girls was snatched by McCook’s Abigail Mohr. She ended on top with a score of 338.15.
