Rosener misses cut at state

LOVELAND – A sub-par fifth dive cost Summit High School junior Tasha Rosener a chance to move on to the final round of the Class 4A State Diving Championships Saturday at Mountain View High School.

After a break-out regular season in which she became the Jefferson County League champion, Rosener was hoping to crack the top ten at state. She missed the first cut by one diver, finishing 21st of 30 athletes.

“It appeared to me that she was a little nervous,” said SHS head swimming coach Graig Fischer, who made the trip despite not having any swimmers at the meet. “She didn’t really have a bad dive until the fifth dive. It wasn’t what we are accustomed to seeing with her.”

Divers get five attempts in the first round, and all five count toward the final score. Consistency is key, and there is no room for a bad dive. To top 20 divers made the first cut.

“If she had an average dive there, she would have made the first cut,” Fischer said. “The biggest thing is she’s got another year and she’ll learn from this.”

Rosener was coached this season by Julie Sutor, who was in her first year with the program.
