Margaret Craycraft, daughter of Ken and Sue Craycraft, has signed a letter-of-intent to further her education and athletic career at Princeton University, Princeton, N. J.

The Milford High School senior chose Princeton because “it’s a great school. It had what I was looking for in its visual arts department and I liked the members of the faculty and the coaches that I met.”

The valedictorian of her class of more than 400 seniors at Milford High will be majoring in photography.

She plans to become a member of the diving program, the same sport in which she has starred in high school. Several times the most valuable member of the girls diving program, she has also competed as a member of the Milford varsity swimming team in both the freestyle and butterfly.

Andrew Campbell, coach of the Milford diving program expressed he was "very proud of Margaret. She is an excellent example of what a student-athlete should be."

The two-time Ohio High School Athletic Association state championship meet one-meter diving competitor has qualified, to date, three times to the district level of competition.

She earned membership to the academically prestigious National Honor Society at MHS and was a member of the yearbook "Droflim" staff, and the Spanish Club.

The two-time Fort Ancient Valley Conference female one-meter diving champion is proud of breaking both the school one-meter, six-dive and 11-dive one-meet records and owns the E-Gals' best nine total individual meet scores in diving competition for six dives and the best 11 scores in individual meets in 11-dive competitions.

Margaret may have most probably inherited her athletic skills. Her dad is a member of the Bethel-Tate High School Sports Hall of Fame and qualified throughout his prep career as a Tiger for the state cross country and track championship meets (distance runs) in which he placed several times in both.

"My dad supported me in everything and he never pressured me and I have always appreciated that," she said.

Said her father, "(The recruiting and college visits) was a fun process. We knew she'd go to a good school and that the very good SAT and ACT scores she made raised her chances for a good school."

"I am very proud of her, I just wish Princeton was closer to home so we could be closer to her," said her mother.
