Boys Swimming Team Is Cut Due to Lack of Swimmers

Junior Luke Davis prepares to dive into the water from the block. The boys’ diving and swimming team was cut this year due to a lack of swimmers and a coach. This decision could change in the future if more swimmers and divers try out.

With last year’s State diving champion graduated and the coach retired, the swim team is no more. It was left with two swimmers and no coach, which is not the makings of a good team. Throughout the summer, Athletic Director Mike Janes sent out information about the upcoming tryouts and open coaching position but did not get enough appeal.

“I put out communication about the swim coaching position and had two responses,” Janes said. “Based off of last year’s numbers, there weren’t enough swimmers to support the team.”

Junior Luke Davis and sophomore Caleb Gelven are the two remaining swimmers. Davis went to pick up a tryout card over the summer, where he was told that there wasn’t going to be a team.

“It’s sad and disappointing,” Davis said. “Swimming was very intense, which kept me in shape. Also, the competitions were fun to go to and the team was nice. There was a lot of good sportsmanship.”

Despite not having a boys’ swim team this year, there is hope that this setback is temporary. If the team gets more swimmers next year, Janes will hire a coach, and the boys will be back in the pool once again.

“I’m going to keep the job position posted and try to get some interest in coaching and in the sport,” Janes said.
