Miss Janie Moss passed away on Sunday December 26th

Miss Janie has been extremely influential in the sport of diving as a supporter, administrator, and as US Diving registration chairperson for decades. Her personality and charm has extended far beyond the state boundaries of Georgia, and she has touched many peoples' lives among the diving community. Miss Janie had an endearing presence which made many of us feel as though she was the "mother" or "grandmother" of diving in the South. Up until the time of her death, she would be diligently working on all of the diving association business, and would expect phone calls during all diving events (whether they were junior, senior, high school or college) in order be informed of how the divers were doing. Her southern charm, wit, bright smile, and sincere concern for all involved in our sport will be greatly missed.

Kelly Walsh diver Nick Stone has yet to find a true rival on the springboard, so his arch-nemesis is a dive: the back 1.5 pike...At last year's state swimming and diving meet, Stone needed 23 points on the last dive to win.
