White Rock Divers strong at nationals

Handful of divers fare well at Junior Elite National Championships in Edmonton.

A handful of White Rock Divers took on some of the top young talent in the country last week, at Junior Elite National Championships in Edmonton.

Carolyn MacFarlane was among the busiest divers at the event, competing in every event despite overcoming a recent bout of mononucleosis.

MacFarlane – who is set to dive next season at Princeton University – finished fifth in the girls ‘A’ platform event, and was just seven points shy of the bronze-medal position.

She also finished ninth in the girls ‘A’ one-metre event, and was 13th overall in the three-metre discipline. As well, MacFarlane and Jessie Nowotny teamed up and placed eighth in the women’s three-metre synchro competition.

Two other White Rock Divers, Carlyn McNeely and Tavia Waiz, placed sixth in the three-metre synchro event, while also placing eighth and 15th, respectively, in the girls ‘A’ three-metre competition. In the one-metre event, Waiz was 18th overall, and McNeely 21st.
