State Diving Championships
We Have A New GHSA 7A Women's Champion!!!!
The Mustang Diving team ventured down to Georgia Tech for the 2019 GHSA State Diving Championships. The team dove very well at the county meet, and the excitement had been growing, coming into the State meet. The dive team prepared all week, had their final practice and attended a State Team Dinner at Tin Lizzy's in Kennesaw.
On the morning of Thursday, February 8th, the dive team woke up, and prepared to take on the best Georgia has to offer.
The dive team had a great GHSA State Meet. Our excellent divers dove exceptionally well, and the results confirm that "hard work pays off."
Here are the results of the GHSA STATE DIVE MEET.
