Coach's outlook: "We are looking forward to a great season. The team is extremely dedicated and focused on having a successful season as a team and as individuals.

Although we graduated several athletes last season we are in a growth year. We have 29 athletes who are eager to learn and improve. We have some outstanding returnees; seniors Emilie Zarba and Jonathan Rajagopalan and junior Wade Elsesser are all on their way to compete in the South-West Conference meet.

We have nine freshmen and several returning members rounding out the team.

Two freshmen swimmers, Mathew Howard and Conor Donadio, are both outstanding athletes who will most definitely earn many points for the team and are destined to compete in SWCs and state Class L championship meets.

We hope all of the new swimmers will provide the point depth that has been missing in previous years."
