Congratulations Ray Fortney

To The Reader’s Forum:

Ray Fortney is a Chautauqua Lake Central School student swimming and diving for the combined swim team of Panama/Chautauqua Lake Central School.

After an undefeated regular season breaking both the 6 dive and 11 dive school records, he went on to represent Section 6 at the diving state competition held at Webster High School (Section 5) on Feb. 27 through March 1. He was the only diver from Class C that was represented in the diving competition from our area.

Prior to joining the combined swim team in seventh grade, Ray started diving at Chautauqua Lake in third grade in the Swim and Dive Club; he also attended Indiana Diving Camp and participated with the Blue Devil Divers at SUNY Fredonia.

We are so proud of Ray and all his accomplishments this year.

Congratulations on a great season!
