She stood off to the side of the diving board, visualizing her final dive.

It was a scenario that was all too familiar for the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Baron. Last year at this same meet, Pfaff led Seneca Valley’s Hannah Montau in the final round, but a slight mistake from Pfaff and an exceptional dive from Montau allowed her to surge in front and take the victory.

This year, Montau trailed Pfaff by about 15 points heading into the final round.

“I was so nervous on that last dive because in warmups I wasn’t really hitting it,” Pfaff said. “I replayed last year’s outcome a lot, and I was like ‘Man I got to hit my dives for real this time.’”

Pfaff did hit her dive this time, scoring a 46.2 in the final round, and getting her total score up to 485.5, which would be enough to win Metros, and set a new school record in the process.
