Kelly Hanlon and Cameron Ewig won their events at the Fallbrook April Dive Invitational meet last month at the Fallbrook High School pool.

Hanlon won the girls six-dive event while Ewig had the highest boys six-dive score. Both are Fallbrook High School sophomores.

Cameron Ewig, a sophomore at Fallbrook High, makes a statement while competing. Ewig captured the boys six-dive event at the Fallbrook April Dive Invitational meet.

Hanlon had a score of 140.40 points. The second-place diver, Amelia Johnson, is a senior at Oasis High School who dives for Fallbrook High School under the CIF’s Multi-School Teams Status policy which allows students attending certain schools to compete for specified other teams. Johnson scored 138.70 points on her six dives.

Ewig led the boys six-dive competitors with 140.10 points. Isai Soto, who is also a sophomore at Fallbrook High School, placed second with 110.10 points.

Granite Hills senior Cody Dreesen set a pool record with 527.00 points on 11 dives. Last year Dreesen became the first boy to score at least 500 points at the Fallbrook pool when he won the 11-Dive Championship meet by scoring 519.50 points. The girls record of 519.65 points was set by Taylor Pamplin of Escondido Charter in 2015 at the 11-Dive Championship meet; Pamplin scored 518.05 points in the 2015 Fallbrook April Dive Invitational to become the first diver to exceed 500 points in the Fallbrook pool.

The only Fallbrook competitor in the boys 11-dive event, Oasis High School junior Joseph Greenwood, placed fourth with a score of 349.25 points.

Valhalla sophomore Isabelle Shane won the girls 11-dive event with 401.65 points.

A total of 36 competitors participated in the Fallbrook April Dive Invitational.
