Background: Central Catholic has a freshman diver that arrived this year with a pedigree and WPIAL potential. Ninth-grader Nolan Jacob has emerged as a top diver for the Vikings. He hopes to replicate the season his older sister, 2015 Oakland Catholic graduate Claire Jacob, had. Claire Jacob qualified for the WPIAL Class AAA diving championships last year.

Coach Mercedes McCarthy said: "Nolan is doing club diving at Pitt and he wants to follow in his sister's footsteps. He is doing extremely well."
