Tribune staff reports
Seymour senior diver Nick Hester entered Tuesday’s Bloomington North Regional seeded 12th out of 20 divers.
Hester, however, broke through and scored 336.35 points and placed seventh to qualify for Saturday’s state finals at the Indiana University Natatorium on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.
“I didn’t expect to do as well as I did, but I walked in with confidence,” Hester said. “I was originally seeded 12th, so looking at those statistics, I was a little let down. But I just went out there and decided I’m going to dive to the best of my ability and not worry about how the other divers are doing.”
