As some of us may know, Manitou does not have a boy’s swim team. According to the school rules, students may play a sport at another school if it is not offered at Manitou. This means that there are a decent amount of boys from Manitou that go to Coronado High School for swim. There are eight swimmers who go to Manitou but swim on the Coronado team. Greg Shaw (12), Marley Kaiser (11), Kieran Lynch (11), Logan Seward (10), Alex Spieker (10), Andrew Dillinder (9), Jackson Sawyer (9) and Randal Burtoft (9).  All eight Manitou swimmers were on this year’s league team. Coronado won their league meet for boys swim for the second season in a row. Manitou swimmers contributed to that win greatly. Manitou boys scored 215 out of 383 of Coronado’s points (this includes relays that they were on). A few of Coronado’s top swimmers are Manitou students, here are a few of their stats for the League meet.
