McCormick Divers are proud to represent their high schools while scrambling to training time since their home training venue, Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool closed in January. This is the second year since CIF has stopped holding the Master’s competition that was often held at Belmont. In the last ten years of the Masters, McCormick Divers won 7 CIF Masters Titles. They are happy to carry on the winning tradition at the Division level as they prepare for summer local, regional and national competitions.
