Moore ready to dive at UGA

November 9, 2006

Moultrie - Moultrie's Moss Farms Diving team has produced some of the top collegiate divers in the nation.

Colquitt County High School senior Hannah Moore is continuing that tradition.

Moore signed a diving scholarship with the University of Georgia Thursday.

Moore won a state high school diving title as a freshman and this summer placed ninth in the women's 3-meter competition at the U.S. Senior diving meet.

Hannah gave a long look at Virginia Tech coached by former Moss Farms coach Ron Piemonte.

But she says Blacksburg Virginia is just too far from home.  

Moore said "It was really hard for me to tell him no but he is really happy up there. If it were closer that could have been a greater chance for me going there."

Hannah Moore has qualified for the US junior national diving meet every year since the age of 10.

One of her goals in her senior year is to win a second state high school diving title.
