Pam Fischer photo
Logan Pearsall, PAHS Class of 2006, made a brief stop in his hometown after competing at the FINA World Masters Championships held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. 

 FINA is the Federation's biggest competition in terms of participation as it welcomes, every two years, adult athletes from all corners of the world. The Masters movement actively promotes fitness, friendship, understanding and competition through its five disciplines - swimming, diving, water polo, synchronized swimming and open water swimming. 

 Logan brought home three gold medals, a bronze medal and a fourth place from the 2014 Worlds event. 

He began diving at the age of 13 years old with coaches Tony Edgell and Pam Payne at the Port Allegany Community Pool. While on the Clarion University Dive Team, Logan won four national titles. Before competing at Worlds, he took five gold medals at Nationals held at Rutgers University and in the spring he took four golds and one silver at the Nationals held in San Antonio, Texas. 

Logan has accepted a position as the head diving coach at Colorado Mesa University. He will also continue his studies to earn a nursing degree. Logan is the son of James and Louann Barr and Teresa Pearsall.
