More information about the League and other Honors can be see at the AAC website at www.aacohio.net for standings, tiers and stats for all sports.
The Boardman High School swimming team isn’t the largest program in the area. Boardman’s boys team consists of 16 student-athletes — 14 swimmers and two divers.
But the Spartans have developed into one of the best in the area over the past four years and members of the Boardman boys relay team broke several school records over the last two years.
The relay team consists of seniors Kyle Kimerer and Callen Aulizia and sophomores Matt DunLany and Noah Basista.
Basista said the relay team doesn’t think of themselves as individuals. They are one unit when they enter an event.
“I think [chemistry’s] still important, especially to know the guys and how they swim,” Basista said Monday. “Even emotions throughout the race — to get up pumped up before and help you out after. It’s been really great being with these three other guys.”
WARREN — Terry O’Halloran, Carlo Cordon and Chad DeAngelo stood on the side of the Warren G. Harding pool, wearing white, long-sleeved dress shirts, black ties and khaki pants.
Considering the humidity inside the WGH Natatorium and the mass of people watching and competing in the event, it looked like O’Halloran and the other Boardman High School swimming coaches weren’t letting the conditions get the best of them.
Looks are deceiving.
“I think I reached my dehydration level after the 50 freestyle,” said O’Halloran, the Spartans’ head coach. “I never have the fear of losing weight. I could drop a couple of pounds. That’s why I’m still coaching, the weight-loss program.”
Those coaches, along with diving coach Ron Navarra, provide a unified front. It carries over to practice.
