STATE CENTRAL: Boys Swimming & Diving

Bookmark and Share

The 2012 IHSA Boys Swimming & Diving State Finals will take place at Evanston High School in Evanston on Friday and Saturday, February 24-25. The 2012 tournament marks the 81st annual edition of the state finals and the 24th time that Evanston has served as the host. The early days of the state tournament belonged to New Trier, who won at least a share of the team state title 16 times from 1942 to 1966, and another elite era could be in the works. A 37-year title drought followed the ’66 championship for the Trevians, but that streak ended in 2003 and the program has followed with four more state titles since, including an impressive 54-point margin of victory en route to the state crown a year ago.

The Trevians enter the 2012 meet with a meet-high 20 entries among 12 competitors, while Gurnee Warren has the most total competitors with 14. Meanwhile, Naperville Central (2nd), Normal University (3rd) and St. Charles North (5th) all return with double-digit numbers of entries a year after finishing in the Top 5 in the team standings. New Trier returns the six team members (Sam Skinner, Nels Snyder, David Schriesheim, Max Grodecki, Nick Killeen, Reed Malone) who combined to capture state titles in the 200-yard freestyle relay and 400-yard freestyle relay in 2011, both of which included Max Grodecki, who is back to defend his 100-yard freestyle state championship as well. Danny Thomson could help Hinsdale Central become a team contender if he is able to win state championships in the 200-yard freestyle and 500-yard freestyle, as he did a year ago, while Loyola’s Andrew Jovanovic (100-yard butterfly) and Naperville Central’s Sean Lehane (100-yard backstroke) also grace the list of returning event champions.

Every prelim event on Friday and championship event on Saturday will be webcast live with full video and audio, free of charge, on www.IHSA.tv, with Illinois Prep’s Skyler King calling all the action from the William Dobson Burton Aquatics Center.
