Collin Brownell had finished diving Sunday in Tuscon, Arizona, and approached his coach, Robert Wimberly.
Brownell, 11, eagerly asked Wimberly’s opinion before the final scores were in if he thought he’d done enough to advance to the national championships. Wimberly said he thought so, and sure enough, Brownell was in the top 12 at the USA Diving Summer Junior Zone E Championships.
