Boys Varsity Swimming · Season Summary…Boys Swimming and Diving 2019-20

League Champs again in 2019-20

Letter for Marshall Swim Team

The Marshall Redhawk Swimming & Diving Team once again had an amazing season.  The team was 11-0 in dual meets and won their 4th consecutive SCC league Championship!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our seniors; Grant Doolittle, Tommy Huyge, Brendan Tekiele, Henrik Magnusson, Lasse Noeggerath, Shea Morgan, Alex Kelly, & Hayden Melton.  We wish them the best of luck as they take their next steps in their lives.  This group provided wonderful leadership and mentoring for our younger athletes.

The 2019-2020 State qualifying Redhawk swimmers and divers were preparing for their State Swim Meet at Oakland University when we got the news that the meet had been cancelled due to COVID-19.  It was a heartbreaking time for the kids and coaches.  The team was very excited and ready to go.  The team was ranked 6th in the State heading into the meet.   I would like to honor the state team members; Grant Doolittle, Tommy Huyge, Brendan Tekiele, Shea Morgan, Alex Kelly, Aidan Bohl, Anthony Dent, Parker Gilbertson, Nate Turner, Isaac Culp, Marcos Eshuis, Andrew Kase, and Jerome Korten.

I would also like to make special mention of Tommy Huyge.  He was voted swimmer of the year in Zone 6 (which is all of southwest Michigan).  He was nominated and voted on by all of the coaches in the zone.  Congratulations Tommy!

Best wishes to everyone during this difficult time.

Coach Dave Karns
