No. 3 Trojan boys swim team opens at Northridge

Back To Front Page



Mat Pavlovich is jumping right into the fire.

The first year Chesterton boys swim coach will take his No. 3 ranked Trojans to Northridge on Saturday with high expectations.

“The boys team should be very exciting this year,” Pavlovich said. “We are very deep and I’m excited to see what they can do. We have the horses up front and good depth behind them. The sky is the limit. If we can get all three relays down to State and finish high with them, there’s no telling where we can finish.”

Senior Andrew Alders, a Purdue commit, and junior Lucas Piunti should spearhead the top of the Trojan lineup.

“Andrew has been a top kid in his events at the State level for a couple of years,” Pavlovich said. “He has the goal of winning a state title and that’s something he’s talented enough to do. He’s an incredible worker and that just backs up the talent and how great a leader he is. He really wants to do some special things.

“Lucas is at that level too. He’s another guy that can be a top kid in the State in a couple of events.”

They aren’t alone.

“Alejandro Kincaid is someone I think will have a breakout year this year. He did well in his events last year, but I think he’ll make a jump,” Pavlovich said. “Jordan Killosky and Gabe Eschbach are kids in the distance events that can help. The Casbon twins with Connor in the Fly and Carter in the sprint Free and Back can be big for us. Gabe Kroeger can swim multiple events too.”

The Trojans roster is 37 deep, giving them depth in multiple events.

“We have a lot of guys that can really compete,” Pavlovich said. “Cormac Fallon has a lot of potential. Jack Wheele in the 50 Free is capable and Gavin Nagdeman has a chance to be part of the mix in the Backstroke.

“We have a lot of guys that can qualify and score too. We have kids that can potentially do big things.”
