Boys Swimming

Regis Jesuit High School grad Clark Smith is slated to compete in Budapest, Hungary, with Team USA Swimming for the 2017 FINA World Championships. Smith — who earned a gold medal as part of an American relay team at the Olympics last summer — is set to swim in a pair of individual events and one relay at the world championships, a meet that runs July 14-30 and also includes water polo, synchronized swimming and diving.

AURORA | Swimmers from Regis Jesuit contributed to a incredibly 2017 boys swim season, as reflected by the massive amount of Colorado swimmers on the All-American list for National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association. NISCA revealed its All-American awards on Friday — honoring the top 100 performances that met the criteria during the season — and the Class 5A state runner-up Raiders had heavy representation.

AURORA | City prep swimmers had their thinking caps on as well as their swim caps in the 2016-17 season. The National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association (NISCA) revealed its nationwide academic awards for the year Friday and two Aurora teams and 12 boys and girls individuals were honored among Colorado’s representation on the prestigious nationwide list.

THORNTON | While Fossil Ridge has cemented itself as the most elite program in Class 5A boys swimming right now, the program that held that moniker for a long, long time hasn’t gone far. Regis Jesuit has seen the SaberCats win the last three 5A state titles by increasingly larger margins — the past one by 105 points — but the Raiders have remained their closest competition the entire time.
