Nicholas Tolomeo profiles Chartiers Valley diver Maria Lohman.
"Western Pennsylvania has produced some of the country's top divers over the past dozen years and those quality divers usually train at the Pitt Aquatic Club.
Two of those divers who normally come to mind, first and foremost, are Cassidy Krug and Samantha Pickens.
Krug, a 2003 Montour High School graduate and the daughter of Julian and Doe Krug, the club's head coaches, went on to win a national championship at Stanford and qualify for the 2012 Olympics.
Pickens, a 2010 Franklin Regional graduate, went on to win a national championship at the University of Arizona and competed in the Olympic Trials."
