Montgomery County Dive League (MCDL) All Star Meet!

By Contributors David Meisel and Kevin Burke

Drum roll please!…..That is right!

It has been two long years since MCDL held their All Stars Meet, Montgomery County’s top 1meter springboard divers battle it out for the top spot in the league. For this group of readers – you swimmers – MCDL stands for Montgomery County Dive League.
 
Like MCSL – MCDL’s charter is to be a developmental league…introducing young county athletes to the sport of diving and training the fundamental skills necessary to be successful in their future.  Many of our local kids have gone on to compete nationally, internationally, in the NCAA’s and Olympic Trials. 

This experience and team spirit only our neighborhood community pools do so well!
This year 2021 MCDL has 25 pools in the county who fielded teams. After 6 awesome weeks of competition the best divers in the county will compete at MCDL’s 2021 All Stars meet which will be this week.

What can you expect at this 2 day All Star Meet? More than 72 athletes each day competing for the top places in the county.

    As you should be able to figure out peter, the Rays decided to give the rest of the MCDL a chance by not entering a team. Be careful what you wish for.
