Shriner jumps into the diving world

Sophomore is Mount Si’s first-ever diver.

Levi Shriner has stepped onto the board as Mount Si High’s first-ever diver.

The sophomore has already qualified for the 4A district event after taking ninth out of 25 King County divers at the qualifier on Jan. 12 at Juanita Pool. He scored 261.95 points during the 11-dive meet and will next compete at district on Feb. 9 at Juanita Pool. He aims to earn a spot to next month’s state event at this meet.

“What makes him a successful diver is the effort that he puts into practice to make his dives the best he can do is always 110 percent,” said Mount Si dive coach Valerie Berglund. “He is always willing to try new things and work to make each dive better than the last one he did.”

Shriner jumped into the diving domain last year at Sammamish High. He initially signed on to be a swimmer, but his diving curiosity took over when he saw the other athletes bouncing off the board and plunging into the pool.

“I had fun and decided to continue with it. This year has been a lot of fun again and I’ve learned a lot,” he said.
