2014-2015 Boys Swimming and Diving Team

Boys’ Swimming and Diving 2015 Review

The boys’ swimming and diving team finished the dual/tri meet season with and impressive 11-1 record and placed third in both the Marion County Championships and the sectional.  The team’s sectional performance featured 19 lifetime bests and a spirited second-place finish by the 200 Medley Relay team.  Junior Eddie Huck (200 IM and 100 Backstroke) and the 400 Relay team advanced to the state finals based on their sectional performance.  As a result, coach Ed Merkling was named the Franklin Community Sectional Coach of the Year, as voted on by the participating coaches, for the second consecutive year.

Huck established new school records for the 200 IM and the 100 Backstroke, as well as for average points scored per meet.  Huck combined with seniors Andrew Shuck and Nolan Dalman, along with junior Adam Pongracz to break the school record in the 200 Medley Relay.  Huck, Shuck, Pongracz and sophomore Nick Carpenter were the quartet that competed in the state finals as the 400 Relay team.

Huck was named the team’s MVP.  Dalman and senior Patrick Murphy shared the Mental Attitude Award.  Freshman Brian Hendricks earned the Most Improved Award.
