Big Spring held a signing day ceremony Tuesday for senior diver Shannon McCabe, who has committed to dive for West Chester next year.

McCabe, a PIAA Class 2A Diving Championships silver medalist last year, looks like a gold medal contender throughout the postseason. With Dillon Novak winning the boys state title the same day, McCabe became one half of the most successful diving pair in Bulldogs history. 

McCabe, through the school district, said she chose WCU because it felt like home, and she was impressed by its support of athletics. She plans to go into pre-med or forensics and was also attracted to the small class sizes.

West Chester's diving coach is Dr. Ronn Jenkins, who graduated from WCU and has coached the Rams for 41 years. McCabe feels he is a similar coach to what she has at Big Spring and expects to be challenged. The Rams' women's swimming and diving team, which competes in the PSAC, is 10-2 this season.

McCabe will join fellow Mid-Penn alumn Kimmi Szajnuk, who is a sophomore distance swimmer out of Trinity.
