In November 2010, Coach Crawford of the SUNY Fredonia Diving Team collected 3 young talented individuals to start a Club Diving Team; National Champion and All American Kelly SPongholz, Heather Robin and All American Christian Torres. Within one month these individuals became the coaches of the Blue Devil Divers; after 3 years of building the program, Christian is the remaining 1 of 3 coaching for this club team.
In 2011, the Blue Devil Divers attended their first meet, the Halloween meet. They had a great time and made the decision to continue with competitive diving and participating in meets. During this year, Christian collobarated with other coaches around the Niagara District to create a meet schedule; the goal was to provide more opportunities for all of the athletes to compete. They succeeded with a meet schedule of at least one meet per month.
Currently the Blue Devil Divers are trained by Head Coach Christian Torres, All American Sarah Ficarro, Honorable Mention All American Ashley Keller and Zone Qualifier Katelyn Haley. They will be heading to the Niagara District Championship next month at SUNY Geneseo.
