From the Sideline

“Camryn Tongue is our top diver. She helps those new to diving while consistently challenging herself with new dives. She always steps up when we need her to swim. Camryn competed at the West Central District meet on Oct. 18 and placed eighth with a possible wild-card entry to state. With only two years of dive experience, this is a huge accomplishment. She is also a Troy Crew leader, a member of Show Choir, a state competitor for our gymnastics team and our ASB Spirit ambassador.”
