SWIMMING AND DIVING
Swimming and Diving Preseason Preview
The Indian River State College Swimming and Diving Teams head into the 2013-14 season under new head coach Sion Brinn.
Brinn has a great team with remarkable returning sophomores and talented freshman.
The Women’s squad will be coming off their 35 NJCAA National Title and will be looking for win number 36. This year’s squad will be led by the reigning NJCAA Swimmer of the meet Yuri Nakano. Other returners to look out for are Patricia Casellas, Emily Ramirez, and Becky Derogatis. This year’s team has a multitude of incoming freshman that should make an immediate impact. Barbara Caraballo is just coming off her first World Championships representing Puerto Rico, and Josefine Hippi and Georgina Allin just finished competing at their national Championships in Sweden and Great Britain respectfully. On the diving boards, Freshman Ashley Wright will be one to watch.
The Men’s team is coming off their 39th NJCAA National Championship win in a row. This year’s team will be looking for their unprecedented 40th National Title. The men’s squad will also be returning the reigning NJCAA Swimmer of the meet in Josh Oathout. Other sophomores that should make a huge impact are Heinrich Alberts, Caio Azevado, Marc Rojas, Alec Scott and Evan Jacob. The incoming freshman are just as strong being led by Quinn Poti, Erik Risolvato, and Shota Nakano and Stefan Stojmenovic just to name a few. The Diving team will be led by returner Zack Duvall.
