N-G Top 10: Boys' swim and dive (Jan. 24)

N-G Top 10: Boys' swim and dive (Jan. 24)

After three of our top-five squads competed at Tuesday’s Twin City Meet, preps coordinator COLIN LIKAS checks in with a fresh batch of rankings:

1. Centennial    1    With athletes like Alex Shilts, Luke Starks and Cade McAndrew, among others, the Chargers will be hard to push from this spot.

2. Champaign Central    2    Ryan Wierschem is the Maroons’ go-to swimmer, but teammates Davin Yoo, Nik Johnson and Joshua Noa are making an impact, too.

3. Danville    3    The Vikings seek to build a strong base around Bismarck-Henning/Rossville-Alvin transfer Lane Wagner and his blazing-fast times.

4. Urbana    5    Ethan Chow could contend for a state-tournament spot in at least one event, while Nate Hedrick offers a strong complement for the Tigers.

5. Mahomet-Seymour    4    It’s only appropriate that one of the Bulldogs’ leading pool athletes is Dante Waters. William Larson also has proven important.
