Diving coach Scott TenEyck is confident that both of his pupils, Genoa’s Bailey Dipman and Lake’s Samantha TenEyck, can make it to the state meet in Canton this season. He said he sees a lot of potential in Dipman.

"It's just a matter of how much effort she wants to put into it," he said. "She's ahead of most freshmen. Her scores need to improve, but that will improve as we compete more and she gets more experience. Right now she's getting pitted against sophomores, juniors and seniors. She's definitely got talent."

Dipman placed third at the Solon Extravaganza and was sixth at the Knight Invitational. She placed fourth out of 37 divers at the Fremont Ross meet.

"She is just finally coming into her own," coach TenEyck said. "She's got a pretty tough (diving) list, so it's just a matter of cleaning it up. Her advantage is she has great lines. She's tall and slender with great lines for a diver. That highlights what she does."

Dipman, 14, has been diving for half of her life.

Wildcats will have a new head coach in 2010.

Lou Bosh was the Wildcats' head coach for the past 12 years, but the school has chosen to go in another direction.

Woodmore Athletic Director Shane Dyer did not return phone messages or reply to e-mails from the Press seeking comment on Bosh's coaching situation. Dyer sent out e-mails in December posting the school's opening for a new head football coach. The deadline to apply was Jan. 19.

Bosh, 42, said he would "prefer to not make any comments at this time." Bosh had a 54-67 record at Woodmore.

Following in the footsteps of a successful athlete is never easy, especially when it's your big sister.

Samantha TenEyck is the younger sibling of Brittany TenEyck, who won Division II state diving championships for Lake High School in 2006 and '07. Brittany is now a junior diver at the University of Cincinnati.

Samantha, a sophomore at Lake, is a first-year diver for the Flyers, who did not have swimming and diving a year ago. Hunter Bell, Chelsea Bell and Adrianna Cannon also compete for Lake this season.

Samantha has shown lots of potential this season, but she doesn't make a big deal out of following her big sister's legacy on the diving board.

"Yeah, I do feel some pressure but it's not like I'm going to beat myself up for it," Samantha said. "If I'm not as good her, it's not going to bring me down. I'm still going to try to do my best. She was an amazing diver."
