Apparently, Bri Urich is a quick learner. How else to explain the Palmyra sophomore turning into a champion diver in just two months?

Urich, a former elite gymnast who just took up diving in December, captured the Mid-Penn Conference Class AA diving title on Wednesday at Cumberland Valley.

Urich posted a total score of 297.10 on her 11 dives en route to Class AA supremacy and in the process earned an automatic berth in the District Three Diving Championships, slated for Feb. 20 at Big Spring High School.

Urich was ninth overall in the combined Class AAA-AA meet, which counted 30 divers in the field.
