Travis Hobb's diving in a meet earlier this season. Hobb's is presently ranked number one amongst the boys in diving in Utah.

Chalk up another win for the Carbon boys dive team. On Dec. 2 the team traveled north to South Summit to compete in an eight team meet. This was a qualifying meet for state competition.

In the 11 dive competition, Travis Hobbs was the first place finisher with a total score of 354.4 points. Hobbs is ranked number one in the state and has won three out of four meets he has participated in.

Being ranked as the top diver this early in the season is a real honor. Diving is the only sport in the state that awards a true championship, where every school that has a team competes with all the others regardless of size. That means that Hobb's and the diving team are competing against some of the largest schools in the state.

Travis Hepworth placed fourth in the meet and did not fail on any of his dives. This is his first year competing.

Kent Olsen took sixth and Brett Wells ended up in 10th.

Hobbs, Hepworth and Olsen have alreadyqualified for state.

To qualify, a diver must compete in at least three meets, do 11 different dives and not have a failed dive in at least one of those meets. There must be two dives in each category and one dive in the category of the diver's choice.

Wells still needs one clean dive meet to qualify.

In the six dive competition, James Machcinski placed fourth. This was Machcinski's first diving experience.

"He did a great job!" remarked Coach Foster.

December 16 will be the team's next meet when they head to Park City High School to compete.

Two years ago the Carbon boys dive team took first place in the state. With the early season success they could repeat that feat once again.
