Valley divers excel at State

Twenty-four of the best high school divers in Ohio converged in Canton today, all vying for the Division II State diving title, and the Valley had two girls representing.

Girard sophomore Savannah Teter was making her second trip to Canton.  Last year, she finished 16th, but Wednesday was much better.  Teter made all 11 dives in the competition.  She was in 3rd place after two rounds, and eventually finished 8th overall, which means she medals in the event.  She was also named first team all-state for the second consecutive season.

“It’s awesome,” says Teter.  “I’m in shock right now.  I can’t believe, like why is this on my neck.  I’m just really excited now.  It’s mind blowing actually.”

East Palestine freshman Faith Anderson also qualified for State.  She did well in her first trip to Canton.   Anderson made eight dives, and advanced to the second round of competition before finally finishing 18th overall.

“It was really fun and it was really laid back,” says Anderson.  “I was just really happy to be here because I didn’t really think I’d make it my first year diving.  But I really didn’t think about it until I got here and saw all the girls that look so much older than me.  It’s a little intimidating.”
