Times Record Previews:

Morse
Brunswick
The Brunswick boys swim team has been to the KVAC Class A championships the last six years, and in the top three in Class A States the last four years.

Despite losing top eight state swimming finalists Henry Raker and Eddie Capoldo, along with school record setting diver Chris Roderick, the Dragons return a solid core to be right back in the mix.

Returning state finalists include senior co-captain Brian Hess, junior Matt Yost, and sophomore Nicco Bartone. Hess set a KVAC record in the breaststroke last year and Yost won a pair events at the conference meet. Bartone had an impressive freshman year with two top three finishes and hopes to do the same again this season. The trio are established competitors and look to lead the Dragons.

CM 2017 swimming preview
Cony girls in unchartered waters as defending state champs

...All of Class A will be gunning for his Cony girls team that took home the crown last winter. Thanks to a deep squad lead by sophomore Cecilia Guadalupi, as well as juniors Talia Jorgensen and Gabby Low, the Rams should be in the hunt again.

“We got a big, fat target on us. We don’t have any secrets. Everybody knows what we did last year and we are coming back fairly intact,” Millett said.

After losing to perennial powerhouse Brunswick 297-287 in the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class A meet last February, the Cony girls turned the proverbial tables two weeks in the state meet at Bowdoin College, storming past the Dragons 311-246.

“We were devastated that we lost. It lit a fire under us,” Low said.

PPH Swimming preview: Scarborough’s Charlotte Pratt back in pool after lingering injury
The junior returns after an ankle injury sidelined her last season.

...Pratt, a 16-year-old junior, had been the Class A runner-up in two events as a freshman in 2016. She finished second to Brunswick’s Caitlin Tycz (now swimming for Southern Cal) in the 200-yard individual medley and did likewise (by .05 seconds) to Caroline Arpin of Cheverus in the 100 breast stroke.

She also led off two Scarborough relays, including the 400 freestyle that wound up second to Brunswick and clinched second place overall for the Red Storm, who edged Cheverus by five points.

A club swimmer since age 7, Pratt had dabbled in other sports but honed in on the pool by the time she reached middle school

PPH Swimming: 10 teams to watch
The Cheverus boys and Cape Elizabeth girls look to defend their state titles.

Girls
1. Cape Elizabeth: The defending Class B state champions suffered a few losses to club swimming (Emily Ecker, Jade Lindenau) so another 175-point margin of victory probably isn’t in the cards. But the return of juniors Olivia Tighe (Class B performer of the meet), Hope Campbell, Alicia Lawrence, Casey Concannon and Corinne Wight, and sophomores Caroline Mahoney and Bella Eremita – all of whom scored points at the state meet – mean the Capers have depth to go with top-shelf talent. An influx of seven freshmen will help.

Boys
1. Cheverus: A sixth consecutive Class A state title will be challenging, considering heavy graduation losses, and Bangor’s depth and talent. Still, the Stags are bolstered by impressive freshmen Brim Peabody and John Hight, sophomore transfer Jack Martin from Portland and senior Ben Adams from a two-year absence. Leading the return group are junior Phineas Underwood, and sophomores Chase Cameron and Quinton Hastings – each of whom placed among the top eight in individual events – and junior Jeremy Baker.
