Viera High’s Sarah Rousseau has made history once again.

The junior won her second straight Class 3A state diving championship on Friday at the Sailfish Splashpark Aquatic Athletics Center in Stuart.

Last year, Rousseau became the first girl and just the second person in the history of the Viera High program to win gold at the state meet.

Junior Ryan Just also had a big day for the Hawks, finishing fourth in the boys diving event for the second straight year. Another junior, Dylan Parris, had his personal best and an 11th-place finish

Sophomore Karly Keysor was 22nd in the 50 free with a time of 25.84.
