Francisco finished in 14th, but only the top 12 advance to the state meet.

“We have such a tough regional, and to make it to top 12 is so hard to do,” said Spring Lake diving coach Barb Brackett. “Add that pressure on and it’s really hard to dive your best.”

Other finishers for the Lakers included Makayla Boyink in 21st, Paige Rubleski in 27th and Shelby Munch in 29th.

The girls had a great season and they really learned a lot,” Brackett said. “They’ll be ready next year.”
