Swimming: Riverside junior continues to rise in rankings

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

As a freshman, Riverside's Brittany Hart finished seventh at the MAC Diving Championships. Last year as a sophomore she cracked the top five with a fifth-place finish. On Friday at the 2014 MAC Diving Championships at Moon, Hart continued to ascend the standings, finishing third. At this rate, there should be plenty of excitement next year during her senior campaign.

As the number of her finish falls from seven to five to three, her diving scores get higher. Hart scored a 244.15 as a freshman, a 266.90 as a sophomore and on Friday at Moon she scored a 372.55. It was an impressive score from Hart and an impressive finish considering the talented field that featured reigning WPIAL and PIAA Class AA champion McKenzie Stelter who won and set a pool record.
