TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson’s Delaney Schnell is in the International diving conversation, but she’s not quite ready for center stage.

The 17-year old finished sixth this weekend on the ten-meter Platform at the U.S. Olympic Diving Trials in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Like with most Olympic events just the top two qualifiers (Jessica Parratto and Katrina Young) advance to the Games.

Schnell did finish second in the Women’s Synchronized event with her partner Samantha “Murphy” Bromberg but in that competition just the winning pair (Parratto and Amy Cozad) goes to Rio.

Bromberg and Schnell though will be the alternates for the United States in the event Parratto and Cozad can’t compete.
