Molly Carlson will return from the Junior Pan American Games with at least one piece of hardware.
The Thunder Bay diver captured gold in the girls' Group B 3-metre category at the Hillenbrand Aquatic Center on the University of Arizona campus in Tucson, Ariz. on Saturday for her first international medal.
Carlson bested nemesis Caeli McKay of Calgary in the final. McKay narrowly edged Carlson in the same event in the junior elite national championships held in Thunder Bay over the summer.
This year marked the third junior Pan Am appearance since 2009 for Carlson, a member of the Thunder Bay Diving Club and St. Ignatius high school student.
