All-City Dive Meet kicks off in Madison

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -

Hundreds of Madison-area youth are looking to make a splash at the end of their season. The All-City Dive Meet kicked off Monday at Maple Bluff Country Club.

This year's event featured more than 300 divers. They ranged in age from roughly 6-18. Kathleen McNeil, one of the co-chairs of this year's planning committee, says the first day went off smoothly after months of preparation.

"I would say that the planning started about a year ago with just general logistics, trying to line up volunteers and sponsors. Then, it gets a little bit more hectic as we get towards the event. It takes a significant amount of time and manpower. It's definitely organized chaos."

The All-City Dive Meet wraps up on Tuesday. That sets the stage for the All-City Swim Meet, which begins Thursday.
