Darien resident and two-time All-American diver Jake Bowtell broke the Fairfield Prep 6 dive record set back in 1994 by Tom Thomas, whose score of 299.84 stood unchallenged in the Prep record books until Tuesday, Jan. 15.

While diving against Hamden, Bowtell's six dives totaled 307.55 points, which set a new record and a personal best.

Bowtell now has his eyes set on the 11-dive record also set by Thomas in 1994.
