The girls swimmer/diver of the week

Published

on

Sara Parksvold, Sr., St. Petersburg Catholic

Standing on the edge of a springboard, Sara Parksvold twists and turns before hitting the chlorinated water with little splash, if any. 

The St. Petersburg Catholic diver has made significant gains in her sport, earning All-American honors at the club level and winning just about every meet she enters in high school 

Earlier this season, Parksvold scored 214.75 points to win a six-dive meet against Shorecrest and Northside Christian. She followed that up by winning another title at the Tampa Bay Classic. 

Fans took notice. Parksvold received more than 62 percent of the votes (748) in the swimmer/diver of the week poll to beat out Sara Bohacek, who had 34 percent (418 votes).
