Another season of diving excellence earned Greenwich High School’s Whitaker Grover and Jayden Satir All-America honors for the second straight year.

The National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association released its list of 100 All-America high school boys divers recently and Grover and Satir once again received All-American accolades for their outstanding performances on the 1-meter board.

Grover, a rising Greenwich High senior, enjoyed a championship season on the Cardinals’ 2021-2022 team. He won the State Open diving title, amassing an eye-opening score of 565.25 points through 11 rounds.

At the Class LL Championships, Grover captured the gold medal with a score of 536.05 points. His championship postseason began when finished first on the 1-meter board at the 2022 FCIAC Championships (530.90). Besides competing for Greenwich High, Grover trains and performs throughout the year for the YMCA of Greenwich Marlins Diving Club under the guidance of head coach Dylan Korn.

Grover’s standout diving efforts were part of Greenwich’s winning team performances at the State Open, Class LL and FCIAC championships. Greenwich has claimed the team title at the State Open Swimming Championships 37 times in its history, has garnered the FCIAC title 51 times in 52 seasons and has won the Class LL team championship eight consecutive season for coach Terry Lowe.
