Sixth-year Willmar diver standing tall
Bennet Woltjer scored 231.90 on the 1-meter board Tuesday night in a dual meet. That's 3 points short of his career-best. The Willmar Cardinal senior has an eye on the school record board and the 272.1 score posted by Darren Melin in 1985.
He's come a long way in six years. He began as a raw seventh-grader with no background in the sport. The program had had no divers the previous two seasons and no coach.
He was 4-foot-7 and didn't weigh much more than a trophy musky.
