Megan Cooper '21 won first place at the Inter-Ac League diving championships on Monday at Germantown Academy. Cooper set a new school record with a six dive score total of 257.30. This is the first time in school and program history that a Baldwin diver claimed the individual crown.
Cooper narrowly defeated Episcopal Academy's Kat Harrar (253.75) and Penn Charter's Avery Meyers (251.35).
Baldwin diving coach Justin Gaudreau said, "I could not have been more proud of Megan yesterday. She and I spoke of a 'game plan' and she executed it perfectly. It is truly an honor as a coach to watch your athlete realize the potential that you have seen in them all along. Yesterday was the first of what I am sure will be many spectacular moments/memories of Megan's high school diving career.
"The key to Megan's performance Monday was having fun. She enjoyed the moment and relished in the pay off of all her hard work this season. Her ability to focus on one dive at a time allowed her to 'stay in her zone' and keep her performance at a high level."
Two additional Baldwin divers competed at the league championships. Maria Harlamova '20 finished in 10th place with a score of 128 and Talia Viroslav '20 grabbed 12th with a score of 127.20.
Cooper will finish the winter season at the Easterns Swimming and Diving Championships, the largest prep school meet in the country, on February 15-16. Divers will compete at Germantown Academy and swimmers will race at Franklin and Marshall College.
