Freshman RedHawk diver Lacey Houser (Danville, IN) is among 13 United States divers who are competing in the FINA Diving Grand Prix, Feb. 10-12 in Rostock, Germany. Here's a continuation of her blogs from overseas.

 

Day 2 (Feb. 9)

Today is Thursday and we had two practices but no competition. Competition starts tomorrow and I'm very excited! We went to a local convent store and bought some chocolates and they are delicious! We have just gone from the pool and the hotel we haven't gotten chance to go anywhere else yet. It has snowed every day here and it is very cold. Practice in the morning bright and early!

 

Day 3 (Feb. 10)

I competed on ten meter today and finished 14th out of 28. Had a great meet and a lot of fun :) I have been up since 5:30 this morning and it is now 8:30, I am very tired and very hungry haha. My team mate Dwight Dumais competed three meter today and took 15th out of 37. We have two synchro teams competing tomorrow and two individuals. The synchro teams are Bryce Klein and Bradley Christensin for men's 3 meter and for men's ten meter we have Toby Stanley and Steele Johnson. The two individual women for 3 meter are Summer Allman and Bianca Alverez. Good luck USA!! We are going to go out tomorrow night and check out the down town area!!

Love & Honor,

Lacey Houser
