2016-17 Men’s Season Preview Coast Guard welcomes back all but two members of last year’s successful team which saw the Bears finish 7-2 in dual meets, set ten school records and placed third at the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Championship. The strength of the program derives from a group of swimmers who broke seven individual and three relay records, all the of the individual records were broken by freshmen. Sophomore Taylor Rowe will hope to return to NCAA All-America Honorable Mention form in the distance events. He closed out his first collegiate season by placing 16th in the 1,650 freestyle with a time of 15:58.353 at the NCAA Division III Swimming and Diving Championships to earn honorable mention All-America honors. He also placed 29th in the 500 freestyle on with a time of 4:37.24 and he placed 27th in the 400 IM with a time of 4:14.08.

Franco is a three-event NEWMAC finalist in middle and distance freestyle as well as a member of the 800 free relay team that broke the CGA record in 2016. Weeks is a key contributor and two event NEWMAC finalist in backstroke and IM events. His versatility in dual meets provides the Bears with a great deal of flexibility. Coast Guard hopes to enjoy a strong dual meet season with key meets against WPI, MIT and the Merchant Marine Academy. The dual meets establish the program for a strong run at the NEWMAC championship meet in February. The men were 3rd last year to WPI’s second place finish. It was only on the last day that WPI pulled ahead and remained there for the remainder of the meet. The Bears hope to finish strongly with some internal improvement, a long standing hallmark of the program, and the infusion of new talent in the class of 2020. Some key additions are Max McCall from New Jersey, John Pompay from Long Island, Owen Gibson from Idaho and the Boise YMCA, and Joe Rodriguez from Georgia.

SEASON PREVIEW

Joining Rowe are other NCAA qualifiers, sophomore Chasse Sodemann in breaststroke, who won the NEWMAC Championship in the 100 breaststroke last season. Sophomore Dan Moreno in IM and breaststroke, sophomore Colin Fenster in IM and sophomore Patrick Jackson in backstroke and butterfly. Senior Elliot VanDeren will join Fenster as a returning NCAA qualifier in the 400 IM, and as a key leg on freestyle relays.

captains Mike Franco and Zach Weeks will provide focused leadership and swimming ability to represent the program well.

Joining returning sophomore diver Will French on the boards is Drew Cheneler who will bolster the diving entries with some pronounced experience. NCAA championships are the goal for some on the team, held again in The Woodlands in Texas.
