That Sun Valley's Mike Proietto is headed to the PIAA swimming & diving championships for the third straight year comes as no great surprise.

That he is going as a three-time District One Class AA diving champion is no shock, either. The senior will try to bring home his third straight medal when he heads to Bucknell University next week.

Proietto held off Dan Wilcox of Upper Moreland to capture his third straight District One Class AA diving title over the weekend. Proietto finished with a score of 435.35. Wilcox was second (403.00), followed by Josh Dardeen of Sun Valley in third (354.45).

Proietto has finished seventh in each of the last two PIAA championship meets.

Brian Layden of Springfield was the top Delco finisher in the boys Class AAA championship. He was 16th. Brandon Davis of Penncrest placed 20th. Elini Paappas of Strath Haven took 15th and Morgan Kovatch of Garnet Valley was 16th in the girls Class AAA competition.
