Colton Anderson (11)

How many years have you been diving?

“One.”

How did you do at Region?

“Region I did really good actually I got second. There was a guy that was supposed to be ahead of me, but he had a bad meet.”

Can you describe your experience at Region?

“Scary, I was really nervous. I didn’t think a lot, I just did on my dives. They were really good.”

What were your expectations for Region?

“To just not mess up, to not fail any dives.”

What was your initial reaction when you found out you’re going to State?

“I was kind of surprised because I only thought I was gonna make Region and then stop there this year, but I was like, ‘Dang!’ Pretty happy.”

What are your expectations for State?

“To just enjoy it this year. I told myself I wasn’t gonna try to place because those boys are really good. So next year, I’m definitely going to try to place high. This year, I just want to experience it.”

What is your favorite memory from this past season?

“Probably just like when I learned a new dive and I kind of just throw it. Everyone’s reaction is pretty good.” 

What has been the hardest part leading up to State?

“The mental block you get in diving, which I didn’t know that was a thing and then I got one right before districts. It was bad. It’s where you just can’t throw anything.Your dives are just everywhere.”

Is there anything else you would like to add?

“I’m excited to go to UT to dive off their boards.”
