The 2020 Rosebowl and Rawson Diving competition was a great success for the men and women of St Andrew’s College. Despite an almost six month delay in the competition, with uncertainty about whether the event would happen at all, every one of our competitors put on an excellent show, taking out both overall diving titles.
Starting off in the Rosebowl competition, Lucille Williams (fr 2018) competed for her third consecutive year, and displayed excellent technical skill with her dives. She totalled 147 points, earning her 2nd place on the night. This was backed up by Bella Scullard’s (fr 2020) impressive performance in her Rosebowl debut, showcasing her diving experience and placing 4th with a strong score of 101.6. Lucille and Bella’s combined points lead Drew’s to be the highest performing College overall in Rosebowl Diving.
In the Rawson event, Chester Burns (fr 2019), performed exceptionally well on the evening, claiming 1st place. Chester’s dives exhibited great skill as he executed his dives with great precision, concluding with a strong 29 point lead over 2nd place; an amazing performance. Jake Jones (fr 2018) also carried out three excellent dives, placing him 3rd overall with a total 107.5 points, very narrowly missing 2nd place.
Outstanding results from all of our divers, especially given the high standard of competition displayed by all colleges. These results contributed greatly to the overall success of the evening, with Andrew’s men and women claiming 1st place overall in Swimming and Diving. The team looks forward to celebrating this amazing achievement, alongside the Swimming team at our next Victory Dinner.
