Gruettert makes history for Columbia City diving

February 4, 2012


WARSAW – Columbia City High School started its swim program 15 years ago. Assistant Coach Phil Stanczak has been around for nearly all of them.

“In my 14 years of doing this, I’ve never seen that happen,” said Stanczak. “That” being sending an Eagle diver – boy or girl – to the state regional tournament.

That changed Saturday. Lady Eagle diver junior Audrey Gruettert finished in the top four at the Warsaw sectional, advancing her to regionals Tuesday. Gruettert’s 306.7 score placed her in fourth.

“I’m very excited; still kind of in shock,” Gruettert said.

Logan’s mom, Krista, said she felt the same as Rob — nervous.
