Three area divers claimed state qualifiers at the Section 8A diving competition on Wednesday night.

All three are headed back to state for the second consecutive season. Full scores from the diving meet will be posted with the complete list of section results after Saturday.
The diving competition was moved to Wednesday in Park Rapids to accommodate travel with incoming weather in northern Minnesota.
