Camryn McPherson and Grayson Campbell Win NISCA Diving Awards

The NISCA All-America Diving Champions have been announced for the 2015-16 season.

Saline High School’s Camryn McPherson is the female champion, and James Madison High School’s Grayson Campbell earned honors as the male champion.

Cam McPherson won the 1-meter diving title at the 2015 Michigan Lower Peninsula Division I Swimming & Diving Championships. As a junior this past season, she score 487.15 points at the HS State Champs to win the state title. That score was just over two points away from Elyse Lee’s 2003 state record of 489.55 points.

The 2014 runner-up, McPherson took the 2015 title by a whopping 68.90 points. She will look to defend her title as a senior in 2016 next season. A compilation of her dives from the 2015 MHSAA Champs is below.

Grayson Campbell of James Madison easily won the Virginia 6A HS title in the 1-meter diving event. He scored 607.60 points, which was almost 90 more than the 2nd-best competitor.

Campbell, in his title-winning performance, also broke his own 6A record and set a new overall Virginia High School record in this event. That marked the third individual diving 6A title of his high school career. Campbell will head to the University of Texas in the fall to join their diving team. His diving compilation is below.

The full list of All-American divers will be posted by the end of the month, according to the NISCA website.
