Diving is a major part of Olivia Salvatore's life. The Tokay High sophomore transferred from McNair High just so she could dive for the Tigers. Now, Tokay might have to cancel its program this season.

The diving boards at the Tokay pool, as well as those at Lodi High School, were deemed unsafe during a recent inspection, leaving the Tigers and Flames without a place to dive.

    It's too bad Nellie is ignorant on her post. Both sets of diving boards are not that old, maybe 10-12 years old. 3 meter diving has been elimintated from California High School competition for many years.

    But we have a new gym. Now that makes three gyms at Lodi High. Too bad the gym money couldn't have been spent to make sure all sports continue to be open to students. THis is sad. Oh and how about a TRACK?!

    Another sad day in Lodi when the kids lose out. To my knowledge, and I've been involved in Lodi aquatics in the past, these diving boards are the original structures built in 1976.Why could this have not been discovered last year when Tokay was rebuilt due to mold. This is just another water related issue and could have been included with a little creative accounting- wink wink.But honestly, where is the Capital Maintenance Budget for things like this? Those diving boards are 30+yrs old and must have an estimated life span. Poor planning and "looking the other way" by Educrats. $40K, that's not even one Secretary's pay at the Taj MaLUSD on East Vine.
