Wilhelmina Stanton was brimming with excitement when she awoke to news of the cave-trapped Thai soccer team’s rescue Sunday.

“I was jumping up and down — I was super excited,” she said.

The former Apalachicola resident and professional diver couldn’t keep her eyes away from each new update about the 12 boys, called the Wild Boars, and their coach trapped in the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in Thailand.

Stanton, 35, is a former Apalachicola High student. She’s loved the water since she was small and now spends her days guiding people with disabilities underwater as the South Florida Team Lead for a nonprofit group, Diveheart.
