Kaylea Arnett is a Chickasaw citizen and All-American diver. As a member of the Virginia Tech diving team, she was named ACC Women's Diver of the Year three times—the only diver in ACC history to do so and cementing her status as the most decorated diver in the program's history.
Kaylea began her diving career at age nine. By the age of 10, she was the youngest diver to qualify for the U.S. team that traveled to the Junior Pan American Games in Belem, Brazil. In her first international competition, she earned bronze medals in the 1-meter and in the platform competition. Kalyea also took part in the 2012 Olympic Diving Trials, winning two gold medals and a bronze in the 2007 Junior Pan American Championships as well as two bronze medals at the 2005 Pan American Championships.
At the 2015 ACC Championships, she won gold medals in both the 3-meter and the platform event and took a bronze medal in the 1-meter. She won her sixth gold medal, the most by any diver in ACC history and the most by any Virginia Tech swimmer or diver. She also became the only diver in conference history to be named the Most Valuable Diver four times.
