OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Lainey Woodward from Millard West left no question as the clear state champion in diving with a score of 478.20, more than 50 points ahead of second place. It has been quite run for Lainey since she only first started competitively jumping in a pool four years ago.

The senior grew up a gymnast and did that for decade before making the move to diving. For the last four years she has worked very closely and diligently year around with Peter Charles at Omaha Dive Club. Peter is also the Millard West head dive coach. During the high school season she practiced twice a day, and during club season she practiced daily, including twice in the same day many times. Total dedication that resulted in a state championship her senior year.

Lainey will continue to dive in college in the Big Ten at Iowa
