The Spring Lake diving team picked an excellent time to have one of its better performances of the season. The Lakers qualified three divers to Thursday’s regional event at Hamilton High School and all three finished in the top 15.

Audra Bialik finished sixth overall of a score of 352.80, while Ronnie Russell finished 14th (276.75) and Ellie Higgs finished 15th (263.10).

With a top 12 finish, Bialik qualifies for the Division 3 state meet next weekend in Ypsilanti.

“The girls did a fantastic job tonight,” Spring Lake coach Brian Akers said. “There were some very good divers there and these girls performed splendidly. The girls started out a bit shaky and you could tell there were nerves, but they really pulled through and dove a great meet.

“I am very proud of each of their performances and they too should be proud of their accomplishments this year.”
