Breaking records is nothing new for senior Lucy Hennen, captain of the South Swimming and Diving team. Hennen broke her own record of 210 points with a score of 215.50 points on September 27, at a dual meet against Shakopee.She also broke previous Tiger Diver Phoebe Okerlunds’ 1995 record of 212.55 points.

“I feel as if that was probably a big deal,” said Hennen about her record, “[my teammates] were really happy, people were very proud of me,” said Hennen about how her team responded after she broke the school and pool records.

Hennen has another goal ahead of her, “I’d like to break my own [record], by setting it higher.”

“Last year, I got fifth place [in sections] and the top four went to state, so hopefully this year I can go,” Hennen said about her thoughts on going to the State Championships in diving.

Hennen has a chance to make it to state November 10 through 12 at the Art Downey Aquatic Center, where Section 6AAA Swim Prelims, Diving Finals, and Swim Finals are being held.
