Bothell High senior Jeffrey Goong fell short of his second-consecutive state diving title on Saturday at the King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way. Goong, who made his third appearance at the Class 4A state championships, finished fifth overall.

Goong finished first at the KingCo championships and at the 4A District championships, and scored 384.6 points in the state finals on Feb. 20. Goong improved on his score from last winter, when he won the event with 379.15 points.

South Kitsap senior Jason Gleason won the 2017 Class 4A diving title with 474.20 points in the finals.

Goong said he doesn’t plan to pursue diving in college, as he hopes to attend school close to home. There aren’t any diving teams at Washington state universities.
