Teammate Graham Carr also turned in a fine performance, recording drops of 1.74 seconds and 3.25 seconds in the 50 freestyle and 100 freestyle respectively.
Other personal bests for the Dragons were by Sophie Olson, Jason Bonavita, Kirsten Johnson, Hugh Harrison, Lindsay Dippold, Alex Lytle, Jared Peterson, Christian Johnson, Summer Lucks, Max Harrison and Paige Johnson.
The district diving championships will be held Friday at McDowell. Warren’s Katie Madigan and Izzy Heecox will be competing.
