OWEGO’S KATCHUK WINS MEDALS AT 2024 AAU RED-WHITE & BLUE NATIONAL DIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS (2024-06-05)

Tioga County Sports Report
MIDLAND, Texas — Owego diver Kaelyn Katchuk finished sixth on the 1-meter board and seventh on the 3- meter at the AAU Red-White & Blue National Diving Championships.

This year’s spring national meet was held at the COM Aquatic Center here May 24-26.

The top 12 finalists earned medals in each event. Katchuk was competing as part of the Blue Team in the senior 16-17 age group division.

The AAU hosts six qualifying meets throughout the USA in April with the top divers in each region earning a team slot with either the Red, White or Blue Team. Katchuk earned her spot for the national meet at the Rochester qualifying meet last April.

Katchuk, a junior at OFA stated, “I was pretty happy with the result, the boards at Midland are quite looser than what I’m used to in Owego, and I had some warmup dives that landed just about flat. It took a day of practice before the meet to figure things out.”
