Coach: Mike Zupek, 33rd year
Last year: 6-0, first Fox River Classic Conference
Returning letter winners: Jack Burgarino, sr.; John Cress, jr.; Nick Grotegut, jr.; Damian Klemish, jr.; Dylan Neuser, jr.; Riley Neuser, jr.; JJ Klatt, so.; Colten Schroeder, so.
Outlook: The Ships return four State-qualifers in Cress, Klemish and the Neuser twins. Of the four, only Riley qualified for an individual event while winning the FRCC title at the 200 freestyle. Zupek feels his team has a strong No. 1 swimmer for every event but will be looking to develop swimmers for the Nos. 2-3 slots. Lincoln hopes to repeat at conference champions.
Coach: Aaron Stachovak, 3rd year
Last year: N/A
Returning letter winners: Riley Friedrichs, sr.; Zach Siikarla, sr.; Jared Taylor, sr.; Jordan Appel, jr.; Jason Cleven, so.; Jake Risse, so.
Outlook: Stachovak expects to contend for a Eastern Wisconsin Conference title behind four returning State-qualifiers in Friedrichs (200 medley relay, 200 freestyle relay, 400 freestyle relay and 100 freestyle), Siikarla (200 medley relay, 200 freestyle relay, 400 freestyle relay), Taylor (200 freestyle relay), Appel (400 freestyle relay) and Cleven (200 medley relay). He also feels Risse will make a solid contribution after coming on strong at the end of last season.
