Coming off an impressive 2012-13 season that included an 8-2 dual-meet record, a third-place finish at the FCIAC championships, a second-place finish at the Class L state meet, and a fifth-place finish at the State Open, the Wilton High boys swim team will have to compensate for some big departures this winter. Lost to graduation were Mason Molina and Sean Higgins, who each had top-four finishes in two individual events at last year\u2019s Class L meet, including Molina\u2019s victory in the 200-yard freestyle. Also matriculating was Max Bloom, who added points in two events at the Class L championships. Another hit came when junior Stephen Holmquist opted not to swim for the Warriors this season, deciding to focus instead on club swimming with the Wilton Y Wahoos. Holmquist won the 500 freestyle and was second in the 200 freestyle at the Class L meet and also placed second in the 500 freestyle at the State Open. Even with the losses, Wilton should still be a force this season thanks to a strong front line. The issue for the Warriors will be depth. \u201cWe only have 19 swimmers on the roster and no divers,\u201d said head coach Todd Stevens, whose team opens the season against Fairfield Ludlowe and Fairfield Warde today at the Wilton Y at 3:40. \u201cI don\u2019t see any event at states where we will have four swimmers scoring points.\u201d Wilton\u2019s top returnee is senior Tommy Kealy. He won the 50 freestyle and the 100 butterfly at last year\u2019s Class L meet and then finished fifth in the 100 butterfly at the State Open. \u201cTommy had a great season and should be a standout again this year,\u201d said Stevens. \u201cHe is a talented swimmer.\u201d Also back is classmate Bobby McDowell, who was fourth in the 100 backstroke and sixth in the 100 butterfly at the Class L championship. \u201cBobby is another strong front-line swimmer for us,\u201d said Stevens. \u201cHe should be even better this season.\u201d The same can be said for senior Callum Breene, who had two top-seven finishes at last year\u2019s Class L meet and will provide leadership along with fellow captains Kealy and McDowell, as well as senior Jack Abbott, who was 14th in the 100 butterfly in Class L. Wilton\u2019s sophomore class includes two swimmers, Charlie Owens and Derek Benison, who scored points at the Class L meet. And a highly regarded freshman class features Robbie Giller, Kyle Wilson and Will Suchy, who could all be immediate contributors. \u201cWe have some good young swimmers, who can help us right away,\u201d said Stevens. \u201cThat is a plus to help offset the losses.\u201d Notes: Kealy also won the 50 freestyle and the 100 butterfly at last year\u2019s FCIAC championship, helping the Warriors finish third in the team standings. Wilton\u2019s roster also includes seniors Chris Hume, Trevor Kratz and Andrew Rowland; juniors Jack Gressle and Daniel Xie; sophomores Albert Cai, Spencer Goodwin and Ryan Robb; and freshmen Anthony Horicka and Harrison McCool.
