MONONA — Only timing will prevent Henry Carman from a shot at winning more Madison All-City Dive championships than anyone in meet history.
On Tuesday at Monona Poll, Monona’s Carman won the boys 15-18 age group championship — his fifth consecutive title and sixth in seven years of competition.
Carman, one of 13 divers competing in the All-City meet for the final time due to age constraints, scored 318.5 points to top runner-up Sam Smith of Ridgewood, who scored 232.05 points, and third-place finisher Noah Krantz of Middleton (216.40).
According to meet records, Carman became the fifth diver to win six All-City championships. Tom Ross won seven titles between 1987 and 1995.
Carman also won the WIAA Division 2 state diving championship competing for Monona Grove High School this past February and finished second in 2016. He soon will be off to Georgia Tech, where he will compete in diving and study biomedical engineering.
A big finish by Maggie Nunn and Natalie Donkle led Ridgewood to the team championship with 202 points, followed by Monona with 152 points.
Nunn, a product of the Verona/Mount Horeb program, scored 283.65 points to win her fourth All-City title and first since 2012.
Donkle, a Madison Memorial product, scored 246.90 points to take second, just ahead of Monona’s Nikki Benedict at 246.70.
Nunn tied for seventh in the WIAA Division 1 state meet last fall, and Donkle finished 11th. Benedict finished second in the WIAA Division 2 state competition behind Madison Edgewood’s Ginger Lingard.
In the boys 10-12 competition, Boston Boid of High Point scored 132.75 points to win, followed by teammate Logan Griesbach with 129.20 points and Parkcrest’s A.J. Beard with 122.15 points.
In the girls 10-12 event, Seneca DeMarb-Schuch of Hill Farm scored 137.50 points to win the individual championship. Monona’s Emelia Hopper took second with 130.35 points, and Ridgewood’s Gabby Drake finished third with 128.55 points.
