“She’s always been a special kid,” Karr said. “She’s starting to really get control of her own career and she’s starting to really work a lot harder.”
Plainfield junior Courtney Coverdale finished ninth in diving, one spot and 2.05 away from a podium finish.
But it is the third straight appearance for Coverdale at the state diving finals.
“I’ve been the past three years and I still get nervous every time,” Coverdale said. “It’s crazy to be here with all of these amazing divers that I don’t get to dive with in the regular season.”
