SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Senior diver Allison Autrey is not afraid of new challenges. After years as a gymnast, injuries forced her to look for a new activity and she took up diving as a sophomore. Three years later, she is one of the top divers in the area and has verbally committed to compete for UC Davis next year.
