Elijah Mercado Dives to a Personal New Record!
Elijah Mercado, a Senior at Hobart High, is only in his 2nd season of diving. During his meet against Lowell, he dove to new heights on the record board! Eli became Hobart's 4th best diver of all time! With a score of 284 he is one point shy of tying the 3rd place record set by Dave Little. Eli also broke Lowell's school record with such an impressive performance that the fans were on their feet!
We are looking forward to what Eli will accomplish this season as both a captain and a leader of the boy's swim team.
*UPDATE* - Two days after breaking the above record, Eli went on to compete against Knox and broke his personal best record! This now makes him the 3rd best diver in the History of Hobart! Congratulations Eli!
