2019-2020 Boys Swim & Dive Banquet
The boys 2019 – 2020 Boys Swim and Dive season was cut just short, without a chance to see diver Samuel Hudgens compete in the State Meet or a chance to complete the season with the Awards Banquet. Thanks to Coach’s Brewbaker, Childers, Sperry and Smith we all get an inside look at their season and the accomplishments of the team. Thank you for sharing and Congratulations to Coach Brewbaker on his retirement after 19 years coaching our Redwing swimmers!
“Our best meet of the season was the Grand Ledge meet. I told the boys that we matched up pretty well with Grand Ledge, but they had a slight edge because of the high number of guys that they had on their team. I think that Grand Ledge came in a little over confident and our guys were super focused on winning that last home meet. I told the guys all week that this meet was going to come down to the last two events and that’s exactly how it played out. It was super exciting and that was the loudest I’ve heard our crowd in probably the last two seasons. It was an awesome end to our season and one that was special to me and one that I will always remember. The meet ended with a great 94-92 win for the Redwings.” Coach Brewbaker
