Season outlook: The boys’ team lost three-fourths of its top relay teams that took fifth in the 200-yard freestyle and seventh in the 400 freestyle at the state meet last year. Matthew Charest is the lone returner from those relay teams and is expected to have a big season. He finished third in the 100 breaststroke and fourth in the 200 IM at the state meet. The girls have to find a replacement for Taylor Roy, who took third in the 50 freestyle and fourth in the 100 freestyle during KVACs.
