Trinity Thomas

Thomas, a senior, finished in second place in diving on Saturday with a total of 379.70 points. What made her achievement most remarkable is that she has only been diving for a year. 

Thomas is best known as a member of the USA National Gymnastics Team. She's expected to compete in April's World Cup in Tokyo.

Big Spring's Shannon McCabe won the event with 396.95 points.

Thomas continues a tradition of excellence for West York divers. Erica Sarver won the state gold medal in 2017.

Trinity's sister, Tesia, tied for 19th in the 50-yard freestyle.

Aidan Fryar was fifth in 50-yard freestyle in 21.35 seconds. He also teamed with Zach Gochnauer, Matt Peters and Devon Lonergan to finish seventh in the 400 free relay in 3:19.31.

Fryar also won the B final in the 100 free in 47.12 seconds to place ninth overall in that event.

Lonergan finished 17th in the 500 free and 25th in the 200 free. Peters was 27th in the 200 individual medley and 28th in the 100 breaststroke.
