Q:  Why did you start diving this year?

Sam: I heard that the team was looking for divers, and I was looking for something new.

Jimmy: Sam kept telling me about diving and convinced me to come to a practice. Even though I wasn’t very good, I still had a lot of fun and felt welcomed by the team.

2. What’s your favorite dive?

S: My inward one and a half dive because at times, it has scored me as much as 40 points.

J: Probably the reverse dive–even though it’s not perfect, I still feel like I can consistently get it.

3. What do you think you have improved on this year?

S: Diving is a very technical sport, and I feel like I have improved on the fine details, like ripping on entry and holding the techniques through the dive.

J: I feel I’ve improved most on my backs because I was extremely afraid of them at the beginning of the season and now I’m able to do them with little doubt.

4. What do you think you could have improved on?

S: I think I could have improved on consistently hitting my dives in the meets and getting more height off the board.

J: My consistency and the fine details in my form for every dive.

5. How do you balance school and diving?

S: I make sure after practice to get home and get my homework done.

J: I try to take advantage of my study hall.
