2017 Season Outlook

Head Coach-                   Mike Essig ’85; enters his 1st season as head coach

Team Moderator-           Wayne Kraus ’85; enters his 17th season with the program

2016-17 team finish–     Region champion & State 4th place

Key returning athletes–   Ryan Greer, Jacob Bain, Hunter Tapp, Jacob Bibeau, Jacob Dray, Luke Bunnell, Nick Neumann, Jacob Bellucci, Logan Thomas, Drew Grimm

Key newcomers-            Trent Kolter, Kyle Feger

The Swim & Dive Team should once again be the top team in Region 5, and will look to maintain or improve upon their 4th place finish at state this past season.  Top competition from around the state will come from St. Xavier, Covington Catholic, and Lexington Catholic.

Junior Hunter Tapp, who won two events last season at the KHSAA state swim meet, setting the state record in the 100 freestyle, will again be the top swimmer on the team.  He will be joined by a number of teammates who will have the potential to score very well at the state meet, including fellow juniors Jacob Bibeau, Jacob Dray, and Luke Bunnell and senior Ryan Greer.  The team will once again be able to put together some very competitive relays.  Team captains for the 2017-18 season include seniors Jacob Bain and Nick Campbell and junior Owen Gilligan.

Mike Essig ’85 takes over as head swim coach after a successful 9-year run by Kelly Horrell.  Coach Mike brings decades of swimming experience to the program, as he is also the owner of Triton Swimming, LLC.  The team will travel several times this season to take on top competition in Indiana (including Fishers, Castle, Jeffersonville) and Ohio (Mason).  Once again the Swim & Dive Team will host two of the top swim meets in the state, Girls’ Night Out in December and Rock the Block in January.
