Red Lion’s varsity swim team has made rebuilding a priority this year.
“We had a top few swimmers graduate last year,” said Hannah Coligan, head varsity swim coach, “so we need the younger swimmers to step up and fill spots.”
And a few of them have. Coach Coligan called junior Jacob Lorenzen “an energizer bunny” and the “master of distance,” while sophomore David White is versatile with strength in various strokes.
On the girls’ team, senior Claire Aggen is one of the team’s strongest swimmers, both in and out of the pool. “She can out-bench, -squat, and -deadlift anyone on the team,” Coligan said.
