                INDIANAPOLIS -- More than 100 divers from nine countries will head to Tucson next week to compete in the UANA Junior Pan American Diving Championships, set for September 26-29 at the University of Arizona's Hillenbrand Aquatic Center.
               The championships are held every other year and will take place in the United States for the first time since 2005. Divers from Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Jamaica, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico, the United States and Venezuela are expected to participate.
               The U.S. team features 24 divers, including Tucson's Delaney Schnell. Schnell, a freshman at Tucson High Magnet School, won a junior national championship on platform this summer and took silver on platform at the 2011 Junior Pan Am Championships in Medellin, Colombia.   The Junior Pan American Championships mark the third major diving event held at the Hillenbrand Aquatic Center. In 2010, USA Diving's Junior and Age Group National Championships and the FINA World Junior Diving Championships were held in Tucson.
               Competition will be conducted for both boys and girls on 1-meter springboard, 3-meter springboard and platform in four age groups: 11-and-under, 12-13, 14-15 and 16-18. There will also be a synchronized 3-meter event for a combined 14-18 age group for both boys and girls.
