Hastings diver and upcoming senior Vova Tipler has been named an All-American by the National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association for the 1-meter dive. Hastings High School boys' swimming and diving head coach Gerry Rupp said that the top 100 diving performances from public and private high schools throughout the country were selected.

Tipler won the class AA Minnesota state diving championship last March and was the only diver from Minnesota selected. He will return this next winter for his senior season as part of a very young Raiders swimming and diving team.
