As if winning the WPIAL diving championship last week was not awesome in and of itself, Pine-Richland's Dom Giordano set a WPIAL record with a score of 610, breaking the mark set by Connor Kuremsky.

The impressive gold-medal finish allows the opportunity for Giordano to try to break Kuremsky's PIAA mark of 599.50 that was established in 2011.

“I am really happy,” Giordano said. “Connor is a former club teammate, and I think his coach thought that record was going to be around awhile.”

Giordano said he really wanted a strong finish to his senior season and hopes this momentum carries over to the state meet March 13-16 at Bucknell University.

“I will continue to train and work hard, and I will forget about states for now,” he said.

The senior doesn't want to over-prepare, rather just continue to practice and keep up the consistency that has gotten him this far.

“The mental part won't kick in until I get there,” he said. “I do the dives in my head, and then don't think about them until it happens.”
