Kohls wins diving at league meet, Twelve Warrior girls entries qualify for CIF meet
Last updated 5/22/2008 at Noon
Fallbrook High School’s Nicholle Kohls won the girls diving event at the Avocado League meet.
Kohls had a score of 410.85 points on 11 dives. The Warriors finished fourth in the league meet, which was held at The Wave in Vista and consisted of preliminaries May 7 and finals May 9.
“We did okay,” said Fallbrook coach Sean Redmond.
A combination of how the schools placed at the league meet and their position in league dual meet standings determined the league championship. Fallbrook also finished fourth in league standings.
The league meet also served as a final opportunity for swimmers or relay teams to post qualifying times for the CIF meet. Twelve Fallbrook girls entries qualified to compete in the CIF preliminaries May 15 at Coronado High School, and those who finished among the top twelve at the preliminaries returned to Coronado High School May 17 for the CIF finals.
A swimmer who qualifies for the CIF meet in more than two individual events can only swim two events, although those swimmers can also participate in up to two relay races.
Four of the 12 Warrior entries in the CIF meet competed in the diving event. In addition to Kohls, Fallbrook was represented in the diving by Haley Knox, Jamie Lusher, and Katie Neal.
Kohls also qualified for the CIF meet in the 50-yard freestyle race. Casaundra Dowden also qualified in two events and represented Fallbrook in the 100-yard backstroke and 100-yard breaststroke. Two Warriors, Brie Edwards and Sydney Fitzpatrick, qualified in the 500-yard freestyle.
Fallbrook also qualified for the CIF meet in all three girls’ relay races: the 200-yard medley relay, the 200-yard freestyle relay, and the 400-yard freestyle relay.
