Meet The Seniors: Emilie Skartvedt

Here’s our final senior in the Meet The Seniors series. This series offered a great chance for all of our fans to see what outstanding young ladies help lead our team. We’ve posted a new spotlight article every week leading up to Senior Night 2013, which is October 14th at home. The meet starts at 5:30 p.m.

Emilie went to state in 2012 as junior. Plus – she was awarded the Tom Cady Achievement Award after the 2012 season for her prior year’s dedication to both sports. Read more about Emilie below.

Message For the Team: Work hard and support each other

Coach’s Comments: “Emilie has grown into an accomplished young adult over the last four years. She’s developed both the mental and physical strength to get back on the board after a poor dive or a hard smack. Those skills will serve her well in the future as she tackles new challenges. Emilie is a leader on the team and a role model for young club divers. I wish her the best going forward, beginning with a return trip to state!”Regionals Diving
