Colquitt County expected to dominate GHSA diving meet

February 6, 2007

 Moultrie - When it comes to high school diving in the state of Georgia, Colquitt County consistently scores all tens.

That winning streak is expected to continue at the state swimming and diving meet this week in Atlanta.

Colquitt County senior Hannah Moore, who has signed with Georgia, is aiming to leave high school with a second state individual title.

Moore won the state individual title as a freshman but has finished second and third the last two seasons.

Junior Ryan Helms is going for his third straight state title.

Helms broke the pool record in a meet in Atlanta last week where his score would beat the existing state record by 54 points.

That state record belongs to Webb Worthington who is now a freshman at Georgia and a good friend of Helms.

Ryan Helms said "He is always talking about me breaking his record. I did it the other day. If I do it again at the state meet then it would be even cooler."

Hannah Moore said "It would be wonderful if I could win.  That is what I am hoping for.  We will see." 

The GHSA AAAAA diving meet is Thursday morning at Westminster School in Atlanta.
