SWIMMING HISTORY

Swimming for Boys and Girls was started in the 1983-84 school year under the direction of Sara Wax which became the first local High School program. Prior to the 1991-92 season, the North Central Ohio Swim League was formed with Calvert, Bucyrus, Galion, Colonel Crawford and Ontario as original members. Coach Mary Ann Kromer took over for Wax and coached for 3 years before stepping down. Janet Stover led the Senecas beginning in 1994 and during her tenure added a diving team in the 1997-98 season. In 1999-2000, she sent three to the State competition including Marcia Corthell, Ellen Ewald, and Jessica Ewald. Completing the 2001-02 season Jessica Ewald had made State for her third consecutive season. In 2002-03, Calvert did not fund a team but three swimmers swam for SAK (Seneca Aquatic Klub) under coach Peggy Ewald. Samantha Ritzler represented the Senecas as the lone swimmer during the 2003-04 season and qualified for the State meet 3 years under coach Katie Slosser. Donna Hudacek guided the swimmers for 2009 and until the 2013 season. Tori Harris began coaching the team in 2013 and is the current coach. Her first year brought success with State qualifier Corinne Harris and she repeated in 2014-15. The 2015-2016 season boasted 2 State Finalists. Senior Corinne Harris returned for her 3rd time representing Calvert at the State Meet and Taylor Harris made her first appearance. During this season the girls’ team set 8 school records. In 2016-2017, Taylor Harris represented the Senecas at the State Meet in 2 events. The 2017-18 season brought several District qualifiers, 4 school records, and State qualifier Taylor Harris for her 3rd consecutive year.
