a great performer."
"There's no question the schedule is an overall upgrade," said Charles. "A successful season would be to challenge Maloney for the division title, which I think we can, and in our 12 meets to win seven. That would be a great season. The CCC will be a challenge, but I think the kids can rise to the occasion."
Half of the team is freshmen and sophomores, eight are juniors and only six are seniors. The leading swimmers are senior Kaci Cotharin (backstroke, individual medley), juniors Christina Nowack (breaststroke, sprint freestyle), Katie Passons (freestyle, backstroke), Brittany Cotharin (individual medley, butterfly), Emily Levis (sprint freestyle) and sophomore Amber Murphy (distance freestyle).
Mercy's high expectations exist because the Tigers have top end swimmers, swimmers that can and should win first places. These include junior Michaela Kearney, who is the reigning Class L State Champion in the 50 and 100 yard freestyles. She holds nine school records and received All American consideration in both the 50 and 100.
He also mentioned four other promising swimmers who will be counted on to score points. These include senior Alex Fitzner, sophomores Celine Coleman and Caroline Gallagher and freshman Erica Naumann.
But this is not a one person show. Nichols also named sophomore Theresa Goehring (individual medley, 500 yard freestyle), junior Nichole Rhodes (freestyle, backstroke) and junior Haylle Reidy (sprint freestyle) as top end swimmers.
moving in the right direction. Nichols said the top teams on his schedule are Branford, Cheshire, Amity Regional of Woodbridge, Sacred Heart of Hamden and Middletown.
"I think we can challenge Maloney for the division title in the CCC South," said Charles. The division includes Bristol Eastern, Bristol Central, Maloney, Platt and Plainville. Outside the division, the schedule is daunting.
Five years ago, the team was wandering in the swamp of lost seasons, but in 2007 MHS was 7 6 and last year was 9 2 and finished second in the Nutmeg Swim Conference. So what will the new league mean?
"We don't have those swimmers that are first place guarantees," said Charles. "But we do have depth and I think we'll be able to 2 3 4 teams in a lot of races. We also Balenciaga Everyday Tote M

Trevor Charles is beginning his sixth year as coach of the girls swim team at MHS and in that five year tenure, the team has completed a remarkable turnaround.

have kids who are versatile and can swim different races. I also am worried about our sprint relay [200 yard freestyle relay] and that we have a lot of young, inexperienced swimmers."
What MHS lacks this year isn't numbers the team has 28 varsity swimmers but top end swimmers.
Two years ago Mercy went 7 6 in the tough Southern Connecticut Conference. In 2008, the Tigers improved to 9 4. More than that, Mercy jumped from 25th place in the State Open in 2007 to 10th place in 2008. Mercy's coach sees his club making more progress come season's end.
"I worry about depth," he said. "We have 56 girls on the team, but many of those girls are very inexperienced. I know we have top end kids, but to win dual meets, you need those 2 3 4 finishes."
Nichols said he thought his team's strengths centered on Kearney in the sprints, but also Balenciaga Bag Sale in the other strokes back, breast and butterfly and the individual medley.
"We could be fighting for a top three finish in Class L and also an improvement from where we were in the Open Meet," said Nichols, who, like his counterpart Trevor Charles at Middletown High, is a former swimmer at Marist College.
