HUGE Congratulations to CDS diver, Henry Fusaro.

Henry earned 3 silver medals at Jr nationals and a spot on the Jr World team. He will be heading to Russia in September where he will represent the US on 1 and 3m.

At Sr Nationals he made it to the finals in the 3m competition, finishing 10th in the country!!!

He also finished fifth in the Men's Senior Synchronized 3m Springboard Finals.

Amazing performance. We're proud to have Henry on our team, performing so well and mentoring our young athletes!!!

Here's the AT&T National Diving Championships Dives of the Day Video for August 16 2014. Henry is featured towards the end of the video around the 2 minute mark, but the entire video is worth watching.


CDS Celebrates Big Wins at Age Groups, Junior and Senior Nationals!!!

- Sunday, August 17, 2014

Age Group Nationals

August 2, 2014:

Emily Luberto dove at Age Group Nationals in the 3m 12-13 girls event.  She did great finishing in 5th place in the prelims and also in the Finals!  This isn't the first time that Emily has gone to this meet, and her performances keep getting better!

Patrick Mullen also dove at Age Group Nationals in the 11u boys 1m event.  With a 6th place finish in Prelims, and a 4th place finish in the finals, Patrick bettered his score and placement tremendously over the course of just one year!

Junior Nationals

August 5, 2014:

Henry Fusaro and his Jr's syncro partner from Texas, Christo Law, took the silver medal in the 14-18 syncro event.  They finished 2nd in prelims and also in the finals.

August 7, 2014:

Henry and Cody both dove in the 16-18 3m event.  Cody had the best finish he's ever had at a Nationals finishing in the top 30, with a score 30+ points higher then any other finish.  Henry also dove well, finishing 2nd.

August 9, 2014:

The 16-18 boys 1m event went well for Henry also as he earned another silver medal.

It was just after this event that we received some really good news.  Henry was selected as a member of the USA 2014 Jr. World team and will be traveling to Penza, Russia in September!  We are all ecstatic.  Henry really dove well, and all of his hard training has paid off for him.  He will be representing team USA on both 1 and 3m.  Here is a link to the USA Diving article:

Senior Nationals

August 12, 2014:

The 3m men's syncro event started off the events in the Senior National meet.  Henry dove with his Sr's syncro partner, Tanner Wilfong.  They needed to place in the top 5 of 8 teams to move on to finals.  They did it, finishing in 4th place.  The finals for that event are Sunday, August 17.

August 13, 2014:

From a field of 27, the top 8 divers in the men's 1m preliminary moved on to the finals held later that afternoon.  Henry dove well, but finished in 9th place just .2, yes... 2 TENTHS, out of 8th place!!!  What a heart breaker, but he did dive really well, and his score of 356.60 is very impressive for a 16 year old in that field of men.

August 14, 2014:

Henry's next event, 3m men's preliminary round, had a field of  30 men competing.  The top 18 divers of this round moved on to the semi finals that were to be held later that evening.  Henry's first two dives found him in 8th place.  He hit a bump in the road on dives 3 and 4 and landed in 25th place with two dives left.  He fought back, like a CdS champ, and finished in 17th place, just making it into the semi finals.  This is the highest finish Henry has ever had at a senior National!

3 hours later, the Semi finals began where 18 divers were narrowed down to the top 12.  Henry was focused, patient, and determined.  He had a personal best high score on a twister, he nailed the two dives that had given him problems in the preliminary round, and he remained cool as a cucumber... he finished semi finals in 6th place and will dive in the finals on Saturday, August 16th.


Thanks to Our Leader: Lia!!!

Congratulations to Coach Josh!

- Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Henry and Cody are back from Jr. West Nationals in San Antonio.  Cody dove very well in the most competitive age group contested, the 16-18 boys 3m event.  This was his first time diving at West Nationals in this age group.  His most solid dive at the meet, a reverse 2 1/2, was a dive he learned just 10 days ago!  Way to go, Cody!  Coach Josh had the honors of awarding the medals for the top 12 finishers in both the 1 and 3 meter 14-15 boys events as Henry earned his 6th and 7th Jr. West National championship titles winning both boards.  Cody and Henry are not just great divers, but they are a wonderful example to the younger kids on the team and we appreciate it.  Congratulations to you both, and Coach Josh, for a wonderful performance and thank you for representing CdS!
