Chaminade swimming to be well-represented at states
After closing out the season 7-1 and placing second in the CHSAA championship meet, Chaminade swimming coach Angelo Pellicone is looking forward to bringing his group up to the state championship meet in Webster.
One word applies to Chaminade’s swimming squad: depth.
“Depth is critical for a team’s success because in a meet you can out score an opponent without any first place finishes,” Pellicone said. “Depth allows versatility in a lineup and the ability to minimize any weak events, including strength in all three relays.”
Pellicone has an impressive 16 swimmers heading up to the state meet, and at least one athlete competing in each event. Below is a breakdown of the swimmers and their events.
200 Medley Relay: Tyler Nussbaum - Senior; Keith Christianson - Senior; Peter Ganley - Senior; Constantino Camerano - Sophomore; Joe Guglielmo (Alternate) Junior; James Brittan (Alternate) - Senior
