        Kushner is a native of Thunder Bay, Ontario, and attended St. Ignatius High School where she competed for the Thunder Bay Diving Club.
        "Brieanne is from Mandy's (Moran) hometown and hasn't been diving very long, just four years. If I'm any judge of talent, she will do great things in the future," said Reich.
