For the second year in a row, Liv Mitchell has come home wearing bronze.
The Top of the World student competed in the age 10 bracket at the Junior Olympic Amateur Athletic Union Diving Nationals and earned a third-place finish in the three-meter event. The nationals, which had 397 divers in the nine-to-17 age range registered for the competition, were held Aug. 1-9 at Coral Springs, Fla.
She attended the national competition with her coach, Ila Wilson, and Rich Wilson of Crown Valley Divers.
Mitchell earned bronze during a diving season that saw the local youth break her arm and miss nine weeks of training. She finished third in the three-meter preliminary rounds to advance to a finals field that included 12 divers.
