Provided Diver Lucas Gerten of Rosemount set two records last week. LUCAS GERTEN Rosemount • diving Gerten joined the Irish swimming and diving program as a seventh-grader with no diving experience. Since making the Irish varsity as an eighth-grader, he has established himself as one of the top divers in the state. He won the Class 2A diving state title as a freshman with a score of 419.40. He's a sophomore now, and he had two stellar performances last week. In a dual meet Friday at Apple Valley, he broke the pool record — which had stood since 1979 — with a six-dive score of 320.
