2018 Centennial Boys Swimming Capsule


Head coach: Alex Smith, second season

Returning lettermen: Nine

Top athletes: Jackson Larson (Jr.), Tyler Peterson (Sr.), Bronson Benes (Fr.)

Outlook: Larson and Peterson both swam on the 200-yard freestyle relay team that last year set a school record. Larson also placed eighth in the 100 breaststroke in last year’s Sunset Region meet.

“Despite losing some upper class leadership and state champion Sawyer Grimes (500 Freestyle), we’re returning a strong core of swimmers that are looking to improve after a successful rebuilding year,” Smith said. “This is certainly a more well-rounded team than previous years, which will hopefully translate to better all-around performances from our swimmers and divers.

We’re gunning for a top five finish at regionals, and looking to send a few more athletes to the state meet this year.”
