LA finishes season strong at district

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

Josh Wilcox came through when he needed to Friday and Saturday, earning a final score of 288.50, which put him in the state meet.

Los Alamos, heading into this weekend’s meet, had already qualified four girls divers. Wilcox, the team’s lone boy diver, was within range of qualifying himself with a good showing during Saturday’s final three dives.

Wilcox got 5s across the board with his second dive of Friday’s preliminaries, an inward 1-1/2 somersault tuck with a 2.2 degree of difficulty, one of the tougher dives he attempted in the meet.

Wilcox joined the diving team during Los Alamos High School’s winter break. Previously Wilcox was involved in snowboarding and for his first several attempts during practice, he was performing 360-degree turns and other snowboarding tricks before he was told there has to be some vertical rotation in there as well.

Hilltopper veteran diving coach Keith Greene said many of his divers’ scores have actually dropped as the season wore on, mostly because many of them have been attempting more difficult dives.

On the season, Hilltopper Amy Neal has posted the best finish on the girls team, earning a 154.00  at the Farmington Invitational last week. Neal qualified on the strength of that outing, as did Emily TenCate.
