The smaller the splash the better. Only one other entry across the entire state made a bigger one in the N.C. High School Athletic Association’s combination 1A/2A class Swimming & Diving Championship Meet than did Pine Lake Prep’s Bria DiOrio. Her runner-up finish in the competition’s 1-meter diving event was one of the Pride’s best individual efforts in the event. She also merited the school’s athlete of the week recognition.
