Brophy Swim & Dive team wins its 27th State Championship in a row.
Brophy ends the season as State Champions scoring 341 points with second place scoring only 212 points.
After the meet Coach O’Neill had this to say, "We were able to win by a true team effort. We did not have an individual event champion, but we had 11 athletes score. We won both free relays while setting an amazing state record of 3:03.93 in the 4 x 100 free relay." The relay members where Tom Ottman, Isaiah Williams, Grady Ottomeyer and Jack Blake. The 4 x 50 free relay also won and was just .14 seconds from that state record, members where Blake, Ottomeyer, DJ Brown and Sean Gage.
The following athletes also medaled at the state meet, Tom Ottman 200 & 500 free, Jack Blake 200 & 100 free, Grady Ottomeyer 50 free, Isaiah Williams 100 fly, DJ Brown 50 free. And these athletes scored points for the win, Zander Gomez 500 free & 200 IM, Cal Higgins 100 back & 50 free, Mike Niezgodzki 100 fly & 200 IM, Sean Gage 200 IM & 100 Breast, Zack Paliscak 100 back and Noah Sudgen diving. A perfect ending to an undefeated season. 12 of our 20 State qualifiers where underclassmen so we should return next year in a pretty strong position.
Coach Pipitone was also honored as the Arizona Dive Coach of the Year. Coach O’Neill won the Arizona Swim Coach of the Year.
