Varsity Swimming Coach

Varsity Swimming Coach Charles Brown and the merpeople faced a big challenge: How do we pull a winning season while missing most of last year’s top scorers? Ape, Guppy, Lisa, Patti, Margarita and the rest showed the way — a youth movement! Under the steady leadership of Captain Julie Casagrande, and the madcap rantings of the second-year coach, this year’s workouts toughened up, and so did the team. The result? Last year 4-8, this year 7-7. "If the season had gone longer, we would have won more,” said Coach Brown, struggling to have a cancelled meet rescheduled. Additions to the team like strong freshman Tom Murray, MVP swimmer, and Patti Wysock only galvanized existing standouts like Lisa Minard and Marcel Lissinna placed, this year three swimmers did. The team as a whole also did well in the states. The future? Bright! Most of this year’s best swimmers are freshmen and sophomores, both they and the coach will come back with more experience, more enthusiasm, and more to shoot for — a winning season, next year. The personalities, Karl "The Ram” Munzel, Mark "Muscles” Petrocelli, Charles, "Chuck” Brown, the pool, the spirit, next year could be the Year of the Sharks.

191 Julie "Cas” Casagrande, the only senior girl, was a very important part of this year’s Varsity Swimming Team. She has been known as a very dedicated swimmer, often the only one from her class to go out for this demanding sport. "If every swimmer were as devoted as Cas, we would never have any problems,” Mr. Brown was overheard to say. Julie’s steadiness paid off when she was named team captain, and she was a true leader to the merpeople. Julie’s event this year, and for the four years she has been on Varsity, is the 500 freestyle, an event requiring endless practice and endurance. These qualities, combined with her unique sense of humor, are what made Julie such a fine leader. JULIE CASAGRANDE
