2018 Coronado Boys Swimming Capsule

CORONADO

Head coach: David Stump, eighth season

Returning lettermen: Seventeen

Top athletes: Timmy Newton (Sr.), Spencer Wilkinson (So.), Brandon Nellis (Sr.), Michael Luna (So.)

Outlook: Newton will attempt to win his third state diving title this year.

The defending Sunrise Region champions also bring back state qualifiers in Luna (200-yard individual medley, 500 freestyle, 200 freestyle relay, 400 freestyle relay), Nellis (200 medley relay, 200 freestyle relay) and Wilkinson (200 medley relay).

“We lost a huge chunk of points to graduation,” Stump said. “This will be a reloading year for us. Our returning athletes and our incoming freshmen will have to come through in a major way for us.

“The team is hoping to win our fifth straight regional championship and follow up our back-to-back state runner-up finishes. It will be great to see how everything pans out.”
