BATH | Although Peter Skelly fell just short of a state-qualifying mark, he put Bath Haverling in great position heading into Saturday’s swimming portion of the Livingston County Athletic Association championships.

Skelly placed first overall with a personal-best score of 419.75 in the diving portion of the LCAA championships Thursday. Skelly’s score was only six-tenths of a point short of the state qualifying mark of 420.35. He’ll still have a chance to qualify for states at sectionals.

In addition to Skelly, Bath got a fourth-place finish from Lewis Jackson (339.95) and teammate David Morris placed fifth (301.00).

The swimming portion of the LCAA championships will get underway at 10 a.m. Saturday at Bath.

“This gives us a good boost going into Saturday,” Bath coach Dan Easterbrook said. “The divers did awesome. They stepped up and did a great job.”
