My vote is for number 8. I know the coach and the swimmer both worked very hard this year. Go University City!

Thanks for the votes and the nice words about the picture, and thanks to all the other participants and their pictures! There were many good ones, it's a real honor to be considered the best. To be clear, I uploaded the picture on behalf of my brother Bill who is the photographer. The diver closest to the camera is his daughter Eve, who has been swimming competitively since elementary school. She is starting college this year in Arizona.
