PREVIEW: Boys swimming and diving

NW, Western, Kokomo return good experience; Eastern is young


“We have a good number of guys back and really good leadership out of our two seniors [Adam Harding and Josh Church], along with a big returning class of juniors," coach Jay Glick said. "We’re really focusing on getting in shape and working on individual improvement. The thing I really like is we have a lot of returning guys, but we also have some new guys. Those returning guys are really being supportive of the new guys, so the guys are really coming together as a cohesive group.”

Junior Nathan Banush and sophomores Logan Hawk and Jordan Bousum return after swimming legs on the 200 medley relay team that finished eight in the sectional.

Banush took 10th in both the 200 IM and 100 butterfly, while junior Blake Brookshire also boasted a pair of 10th-place finishes in the 50 free and 100 free.

Hawk was ninth in the 100 back and 13th in the 100 freestyle, while Harding took 12th in the 200 IM and 16th in the 100 back.

Bousum took 11th in the 100 breast and 13th in the 50 free, while Banush, Harding, Hawk and Brookshire combined to place sixth in the 400 free relay.

Freshman Tyler Schorm will make his presence felt immediately as an all-around swimmer. Church and junior John Fridley will be among the top distance swimmers for the Kats, while junior Colton Pratt will join the veterans in the breast stroke, backstroke and medley events.

Glick will also feature a new crop of divers, which include sophomores Devin Shackelford and Rolando Tyler, as well as junior Jake Delrymple.

"I have a great group of guys here," Glick said. "They’re not only good swimmers, but good guys and students, as well. I like the way we’re coming together. We’ll have good versatility, but we’re seeing where we land right now. We’re looking to improve on our dual meet record and place better in the sectional. We were second in the NCC meet last year, and we’re looking to hopefully move up that last spot, but we know Anderson will be strong again. They’re still the team to beat, and we have to do our work to get up to that last spot there.”
