Prep’s Divers Have a Bright Future Ahead
When Madi Witt ’15 took 1st place at CIF Prelims last Friday, and teammate Kyla Bradley ’15 placed 8th, the Rebels looked positioned to make a huge impression at the Finals meet the following day. Nevertheless, Poly’s lead diver, a senior, maintained a close lead on Witt going into the Finals. On Saturday, Poly’s diver managed to outscore Witt, who took 2nd, while Bradley placed above her Prelims position. Head Coach Ryan Goto says he’s never seen anyone score as high as Witt did during the Prelims meet. With three more years of diving ahead of them, Witt and Bradley will undoubtedly be at the top of diving in the Prep League.
