Renton swim team small, but dedicated | SPORTS PREVIEW
They may not have a pool to call their own, but the Renton High School swim team is still looking to make some waves this season.
According to coach Diane Pavelin, the Indians have a good group of returning swimmers from last year's team ready to go, including junior breaststroker/individual medley/sprint freestyler and second-team All League honoree Dan Pham.
Also back is Danny Mar, a senior who swims sprint freestyle races and Benny Souriyadeth a middle-distance swimmer who was also named to last year's All-League second team.
All three returners were part of last year's state 400 freestyle relay team, along with Josh Mehlhaff, who graduated in the spring.
Along with the three top returners, Pavelin said to watch for distance swimmer Brennan Brichoux and sprinter Angelo Ocampo.
Joining the team this season are 10 new swimmers.
Pavelin said with so many new swimmers on the team, the goal is to work on improving all season long and get as many to place at leagues and qualify for the district and state meets.
Renton opens their season Dec. 17 against Steilacoom at the Hazen pool.
