Mia Farley wants to be an oncologist or an anesthesiologist in her working life.

"I want to go to Grand Valley, but I don't know if that will happen," the Anchor Bay junior said.

Nowadays, Farley's focus includes diving and the possibilities that the sport might create for her.

"I'd like to dive in college," she said.

Farley finished first in the Tars' MAC White dual meet against Dakota. Her score was 160.95.

"I improved on all my dives," she said.

Farley took up diving at the suggestion of friends from The Woods Church in Chesterfield Township.

"I tried it my freshman year," she said.

The front double is one of her better dives, she said.

The inward one and a half has proved to be among the more difficult.

"I'm working hard on it," she said.

Farley missed the county meet last year due to an injury.

She has qualified for the annual championship meet that will be at L'Anse Creuse North on Oct. 5.

"I want to get first," she said.

Farley also has a goal of qualifying for the state meet.

Diving, she said, isn't a sport for the uncommitted.

"It takes a lot," Farley said. "It's hard work."
