After last year’s second place finish for the girls and ninth place finish for the boys at Metros, swim and dive hopes to continue its success this season.

All-American swimmers seniors Alicia Tiberono and Emily Andrews, junior Elaina Gu and sophomore Hannah Lindsey, as well as Metro champion diver junior Kali Becker and state champion diver senior Mashal Hashem will lead the team for the girls. The key returning swimmers on the boys side include state champion seniors Harrison Gu and Kevin Gu.

“The most exciting part is all the new kids we have returning from last year and trying out this year,” head coach Brendan Roddy said.

Wootton will be one of the toughest challenges on the girls side, while Blair and Richard Montgomery will be the boys biggest competition.

Roddy’s goal for the girls is to regain their Metros title from 2012 and for the boys to get back into the top five.

“Our team has experienced such success throughout the years, and this upcoming year should continue that legacy,” Roddy said.
