Cate’s 2015-2017 Diving Competitions

Medal Time

After a full season of dedicated practice, Cate won a medal at her very first competition in 2015!

Taking pictures of a diver is tricky! They keep moving … and you are usually looking at the back of them! I managed to get a take a few pictures before Cate decided that spring board diving can be a little spooky. I was not sorry to hear her decision to stop taking lessons after her nose just missed the board on a backwards jump during her final competition in 2017. (When I was about twelve years old, I quit diving because I became nervous about some of the dives, too.)

Cate really enjoyed her diving lessons and loved to be watched 100% of the time, as you can see here. Cate had been taking private swimming lessons, with her brother Sean, since she was five years old and she was very comfortable in the water.

What I did not get a picture of, was Sean. He was up in the bleachers.

Here she is emerging from the pool in 2017. (She was a little nervous before her dive, which is viewable ____)

But, she knew that she did a great job on her dive which is viewable here

and was pleased with her ribbon.
