2017 Palo Verde Boys Swimming Capsule


PALO VERDE

Head coach: Brent Gonzalez, 13th season

Returning lettermen: Seventeen

Top athletes: Mihail Amiorkov (Sr.), Alec Clinton (Sr.), David Miller (Jr.), Richie Selznick (Sr.), Dylan Sweikert (Jr.)

Outlook: It might be wise to just reserve a couple of lanes at the state meet for Panther swimmers, who are chasing their 17th consecutive Sunset Region and fifth consecutive state titles.

Amiorkov (200 individual medley, 100 breaststroke), Clinton (200 individual medley, 500 freestyle), Miller (200 freestyle, 100 butterfly), Selznick (100 butterfly) and Sweikert (50 freestyle, 100 freestyle) all competed in the state meet last season and lead a group of 17 returnees. Sweikert won the 100 freestyle state title.
