Freshman diver Courtney Shostrand walked into the Cadet pool complex on October 26th and said she wanted to learn to dive. The accomplished gymnast was looking for a new challenge. Fast forward to the IHSAA sectionals where Courtney dove her way into the top 4 to advance to the Regional competition with a opportunity to advance to the state meet.
20 divers met in Brownsburg on Tuesday evening to determine who from that regional would go to the state meet. The top 8 divers from the regional advance to state meet. During the 11 dive competition, Courtney battled with some of the best divers in the state. Courtney made the top 12 after the semi final rounds and advanced to the finals and the final 3 dives.
At the end of the evening Courtney finished in 10th place only 5 points out of 8th place . This is only the beginning of a very bright future according to Coach Johnson. “Courtney has worked hard at learning how to dive, she is capable of much more and we are looking forward to seeing her compete in the seasons to come.”
