After two consecutive years of second place finishes, Skyline High School senior Max Levy ended his career as the state’s 2013 4A 1-meter diving champion.
The gymnast-turned-diver, who picked up the sport just three years ago, finished with a score of 463.50, more than 50 points higher than the second place finisher.
“It’s a culmination of all of my hard work that I’ve done since I started diving,” Levy said. “It’s all led up to this point, and I’m just really excited that I’m finally first.”
Levy spent the last few months preparing tirelessly for the Feb. 16 final and now that it’s over, he reflected fondly on what has been a successful high school career.
“There’s a little bit of relief now that state is over, but I’m going to miss high school diving and being here with my teammates,” he said.
