> SOUTHERN INDIANA —
• Coach: Rhonda VanMeter, 2nd season at Silver Creek.
• Assistant Coach: Nick Salinas.
• Departed Swimmers: Carlie Stark.
• Returning Varsity Swimmers: None.
• Varsity Newcomers: Kaitlin Sullivan (Fr.), Shelby Lawson (Fr.), Lauren Pressley (Fr.), Andrea Cortes (Fr.), Kelsey Riggs (Fr.).
• Outlook: With no returning swimmers — and only five total — it’s unlikely the Dragons will be competing for championships. However, with a nice group of incoming freshman, the Creek program has something on which it can build.
• Coach VanMeter said: “My expectations and goals for this year are for these girls to finish with a sense of accomplishment [and] with a positive attitude. Each of these girls add their own unique personality and attribute to the team. With having such a small team, it’s hard to compete against some of the larger teams, but I am very confident that this year we will hold our own.”
Note: Providence did not respond to requests to participate in the season preview.
