MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - Diving is a big part of the way of life for the family of Bobby Blank in Moultrie.

Colquitt County diver Ann-Perry Blank Wednesday morning signed a scholarship at the University of Georgia.

Her older brother Owen is a sophomore on the Georgia swimming and diving team.

The brother and sister were teammates at Moss Farms.

Ann-Perry says her older brother will be a big help in joining one of the top swimming and diving college programs in the nation at the University of Georgia.

Ann-Perry Blank said. "It is really kind of scary but I am hoping I can improve on my diving. Compete against all those teams and do really well against them."

 Ann-Perry Blank has qualified for the U.S. Junior Nationals for five straight years and won the east region title six years ago.
