The last home meet was also Senior Night, during which we celebrated the careers of seniors Joseph Jones (Captain), Jacob Ryan (Captain), Luke Schafer (Captain), Marty Aasen, and Paul Giannelis, all of whom have contributed a great deal to the success of the team over the last four years.

The team has two remaining swim meets at Southern Cayuga on 1/31 and at Odessa-Montour on 2/6 before heading into the IAC Championships on 2/11 and Class Sectionals on 2/18. The team is coached by Reed Dewey and Assistant Coach Joe Rogan, an alumnus of the Lansing High School Varsity Swim Team.
