Don Meredith used to tell us about taking the Nestea Plunge and Andy Griffith used to find the time on the Fourth of July holiday to hit Meyers Lake and take a dive or two with Helen, Barney and Thelma Lou…Now Don is gone, Andy is gone and our hope today(2012), will have to rest with the best, the Ultimate Air Dive Team…..

We will be telling you more about the team over the next few days and if you are interested in learning more, you can go by
www.uadiving.com any time and find out more about the team…..Please contact them at that site….

We don’t have a pool full or lake-load of Greg Louganises running or diving around here, so we have to put our stock in upstarts like Emma McPeeters and her team at the UAD……Look and see where the UAD could be in August….The UAD at the GAC….The Greensboro Aquatics Center….

Greensboro is hosting the USA Diving Nationals the week of August 1-10.

If Emma McPeeters qualifies top 12 in Indianapolis, Indiana the 13-15 of July, she will be competing
in this event at the Greensboro Aquatics Center…… Emma has placed consistently in the top 5 nationally in AAU, as well as USA diving…….This is something to keep an eye on, to see if this 13 year-old and her Ultimate Air Dive Team can make it home, to the home ‘Palace of the Plunge’, the Greensboro Aquatics Center….Could be the home of the best, ‘The Ultimate Air Dive Team’ and Duke-bound Emma McPeeters……

Keep your eye on this spot here and we will have more on this event in the coming days and weeks ahead……Until then, feel free to visit www.uadiving.com……..

And watch for the leaders, like Emma McPeeters…..

    Great story Andy! All of us interested in Greensboro UAD will be watching Emma and her teammates over the course of the next month or so.Thanks for “getting the jump” on your local colleagues in the media by “scooping” them and getting the story. UAD is terrific for our community and and focuses on the positive exploits of our young people.

    In addition with the notoriety Duke diving has received along with our new Aquatic Center and the Summer Olympics your storyline is keenly timed…You have given back to the community for over 20 years, and this is just another example of your broadcast AND print media skills!
