Hardigree gets two first-place finishes in Orlando

MOULTRIE —  Moss Farms Diving’s Parker Hardigree turned in another pair of winning performances in the YCF Christmas Diving Invitational last weekend in Orlando, but he was not the only Diving Tiger to bring back a gold medal.

Ava McCranie moved up from novice to Junior Olympic competition and won the 9-and-under girls 1-meter event. She also was second on 3-meter.

And Carson Tyler took first-place on both springboards in the 8-9 boys intermediate competition.

Moss Farms also got second-place performances from Jordan Avery, Abi White and Timothy Fagan.

“I’m really proud of our kids,” coach Ed Goodman said. “We had a really good meet.”

Hardigree, diving in the 12-13 boys event, scored a 295.30 on 1-meter to beat second-place finisher Jake Servaites of the Treasure Coast Dive Team by 53.95 points.

Hardigree had a 291.90 on 3-meter to beat Servaites by 30.10 points.

White finished second on both boards in the 11-and-under girls competition.

On 1-meter, White scored a 167.90 to finish 32.85 points behind Maia Goldstein of the Seahawks Diving Team.

She had a 171.65 on 3-meter, again finishing behind Goldstein, this time by 42.65 points.

McCranie scored a 123.20 to win the 9-and-under girls 1-meter event, edging teammate Jordan Avery by 4.45 points.

Avery was competing in her first Junior Olympic meet.

McCranie finished .05 points out of first place on 3-meter. Christina Hilton of the YCF Diving team was first with a 120.65. McCranie turned in a 120.70.

Avery was third with a 116.50, just 4.25 points out of first place.

In 11-and-under boys, Moss Farms’ Timothy Fagan was second on 1-meter, finishing 33-25 points behind Tristan Trax of Treasure Coast Dive Team.

Fagan was third on 3-meter with a 176.10, finishing behind winner James Lindseth and runner-up Trax. Both dive for Treasure Coast.

  Tyler impressed his coach with his performance in the 8-9 boys intermediate age group.

He was first on 1-meter, scoring a 137.75, 42.05 points better than runner-up William Turnbull of YCF Diving.

Tyler’s 120 points were good enough to win on 3-meter as well, defeating Turnbull by 26.65 points.

Emily Ann Wolfson was third on both springboards in the 12-13 girls novice division.

She scored a 148.70 on 1-meter and finished just 11.70 out of first place.

Her 151.95 on 3-meter left her just 19 points out of first.

Elizabeth Booth participated in the 16-18 girls Junior Olympic event and finished seventh on 1-meter with 298.20.

Ruth McCranie was the only contestant in the 7-and-under intermediate event. She scored a 72.40.
