Although a challenging schedule is-well-a challenge, the Riverview boys’ swim team is using it as an opportunity to prepare for this year’s state meet.

Recently, MISCA has recognized Riverview, as well as Trenton as a “team to watch” in the boys’ state rankings.

This week, the Bucs took to the waters to face yet another state-ranked team in Milan. The Big Red are the only other boys’ swim team in the Huron League and Riverview Coach Sean Kelly says it is important to maintain the rivalry.

First-place finishes came from Noah Ellington in diving and Nicolas Guthrie in the fly. The Bucs went one-two in the fly with Keith Stokely coming in behind Guthrie.

Other notable performances for the Bucs included Alex Guthrie’s 100 back swim. Guthrie finished in 1:02, which placed him on Riverview’s all-time top-10 list.

Stokely swam a personal-best in the 200 IM and Brad Ranner had a strong swim in the 200 free, as well as Dakota Roehler in the 100 breast.

Last week the Bucs placed second out of four teams at the Dundee Quad. Detroit Country Day-currently ranked fifth in the state-won the quad.

“It was a good experience for the guys racing a team of that caliber,” Kelly said. “In addition, being able to swim a meet in Dundee prior to our SMISL finals-which are also at Dundee- was a benefit to our team getting used to the facility.”

Riverview had strong swims from Stokely (200 IM), Tristan Hoiser (500 free) and Alex Guthrie (100 back).

The Bucs have also had both Noah Ellington and Nathan Smiley qualify for the MHSAA diving regionals.

The team is now preparing for next weekend’s SMISL championships.
