2011-12 CC Season

Post by Cali-man » Sun Oct 30, 2011 11:51 pm

Men's Team outlook-

Gettysburg - huge class of talented freshmen, and some stepping up done by some of the upper classmen so far. Adam Taft, a Gettysburg graduate in 2011, was the only significant loss to their squad. If the rest of the year is anything like their meet against Messiah then the Bullets will have a fun year ahead of them.

F&M - the exodus of the coaching staff over the summer has definitely put a dent in the Diplomats' plan to retake the CCC title in February. Bob Delia has two very different generations of swimmers on his hands, which might affect their ability to compete at a high level consistently. Dennis Chen is a big pickup and will have an immediate impact on relays.

Swat - No dual meets yet, but expect big things from a young squad with a strong core group. Brevart, Duncan, Flaherty and Le will look to their incoming freshmen to fill holes on relays.

Dickinson - Doug Murray returns to team up with Jason Adams, who had a sensational freshman year. They will continue the Dickinson freestyle tradition in the wake of graduating Andy Wade. The freshman class will determine whether this team breaks into the top 3 or not within the conference.

Ursinus - The Bears had their most successful season last year and will look to continue building their momentum. They swam well against a very strong Dickinson team, so expect significant drops from freshmen who will add depth to what could be the fastest growing program in the conference .

McDaniel - The program looks to continue rebuilding since the loss of Coach Easterday, and will look to James Eu for leadership. Though small, their women's team swam dangerously fast last year and the men will continue to have a competitive environment to train in.

Washington - The loss of Matt Violette is major and will take a serious effort to recover from. Austin Auger will need some help from his team at the championship level if they try to be a factor within the conference standings.

Going to be a fun year in the Centennial Conference!

Gettysburg freshmen just put up a 1:25.9 in a 200 freelay. That's faster than the Gettysburg conference championship time in 2009.
