Robinson sophomore Cory Bowersox, the defending Virginia AAA state champion, won his first Northern Region crown last Thursday, taking the title with a score of 525.05.
Bowersox, who finished second at regionals last year to Annandale’s Sean McKinney, who will dive at LSU, this time outscored the Atoms’ senior, who finished in second with 489.40 points.
Both scores are well above the All-American consideration cut of 375.00.
Washington-Lee sophomore Carl Buergler took third with a score of 453.90, followed by Robinson senior Frank Burdell (411.55) and Madison junior Ryan Fox (408.10).
Meanwhile, Georgetown Prep junior Mike Mosca won the Washington Metropolitan Prep School Swim Dive League (WMPSSDL) title last week with a score of 529.65 — well ahead of his nearest competitors.
Sidwell Friends’ diver Olivia Grinker took the girls’ WMPSSDL title with a score of 388.35.
An update on some of the rescheduling for the swim and dive championships:
The Northern Region boys’ swim championship will be held Friday, Feb. 12 at 5:30 p.m. at Oak Marr RECenter, while the girls’ diving competition is set for Feb. 12 at Audrey Moore RECenter at 10:30 a.m.
The Northwest Region swim championship, scheduled for Wednesday at Radford University, has been rescheduled for Feb. 15, at 12:30 p.m., at Radford.
We are still awaiting word on the Virginia AA Dulles District meet. Originally the plan was for the meet to be held on Tuesday, but Loudoun County schools will remain closed tomorrow and thus a plan of possibly scrapping the Region II meet and holding districts on Friday may go into effect. We will post an update here as soon as we get word.
