Delaney scored a record 504.15 points to capture the AIA state diving championship as a freshman in 2013 for Tucson High. It is a point total that might never be broken. She went on to compete for the University of Arizona.
We have followed Delaney since she was a young athlete and she is sending us shots of her diary while she is in Japan competing in the 10-Meter Synchronized Platform and Platform Dives.
