Bekka Boyd’s focus heading into the 3A state swimming and diving meet was to advance past the first round of cuts.
The Navarre senior accomplished that Friday at the Sailfish Splashpark Aquatics Center in Stuart and went on to place 17th overall with a score of 329.95.
“I did a lot better than my sophomore year here,” Boyd said. “I was hoping not to get cut in the first round and I accomplished it.”
Fighting nerves was a key to her success, but she was able to relax a lot more after her first dive.
“It was definitely very intimidating. There were so many good divers,” Boyd said. “But I felt like my first dive was my best one and that helped me out a lot.”
