Sarah Bacon: A National Champion

On Wednesday, August 13, Sarah Bacon won her third title in the US National Diving Championships. Bacon won the 1- and 3- meter events in the junior national championships and went on to win the 1- meter event in the senior national championships. Bacon led through the final rounds of the senior championship and took the title with a score of 287.15. Sarah and her diving partner also placed third in the synchronized 3- meter event.

"I just wanted to hit every dive as best as I could and just see where that got me. I was very happy," Sarah said. Sarah will compete in the FINA World Diving Championships this September in Penza, Russia. 

The Cardinal Ritter Community is tremendously proud to call Sarah a Ritter Raider. She is in all of our thoughts and prayers as she prepares to compete on a world stage. Congratulations, Sarah! We are so proud of you!
