McElroy dives again on birthday Howard notebook

December 19, 1997|By Stan Rappaport | Stan Rappaport,SUN STAFF

Oakland Mills senior Lindsey McElroy celebrated her 18th birthday Sunday in Lexington, Ky. So what else is new?

"It's the fourth time I've had my birthday in Kentucky," McElroy said. "This meet always falls around the same time."

McElroy, who has been diving since she was 10, attended last weekend's Wildcats Invitational at the University of Kentucky. She finished eighth out of 36 on the 1-meter and fifth on the 3-meter in the 16-18 age group. She was 11th in the 1-meter open division, where she competed against college athletes.

"It was a pretty big meet, so I was pleased with my results," said McElroy, who traveled to Kentucky with her Dive Hopkins coach, Vince Wroblewski, and two teammates.

McElroy, who practices four times a week at Johns Hopkins, has a 3.83 grade-point average and probably will choose between Michigan and Auburn as her college choice for next year.
