Senior star Aidan Kreiley signs with Division I Louisville

DANSVILLE — Now that the girls season is "in the books," now it's time for the boys to step up to the blocks.

It's hard to believe but here we go in preparation for another Boys Swimming season in Dansville. Mustangs coach Chris Everett is in his third year and has one focus ... "success!" He should have some fine tools to work with this season as well.

Following last year's 5-4 campaign, the red & black look to improve on that mark. One of the bright spots in the preseason zeroes in on senior Aidan Kreiley who headed off to the state meet on Long Island last year and finished runner up in both the 200 IM and the 100 Breaststroke.

Kreiley recently made it official and inked his National Letter of Intent to swim for the Division I University of Louisville during his collegiate career. Kreiley was joined by his family and school officials at a signing ceremony at DHS.

Before he gets in the pool in Louisville, though, Kreiley has some unfinished business with the Mustangs.

Can Kreiley and company improve on a year ago's success? We'll see.

Coach Chris noted that other key returners include senior Mason Wolcott and junior Tim O'Toole.

Everett added, "This year especially, every returning athlete is 'key' because in order to succeed at the level we are looking for, it will take every individual to come together and perform."

Everett also stated that "newcomers such as Robert Balconi and Ethan Nelson are two new additions to the diving team, which will add needed depth there."

The Mustangs are optimistic as Everett's overview of the season is a positive one.

"I'm excited about this year's team!" he said. "We have a very focused and determined group of guys. With that type of mentality, I only see success in the next 16 weeks."
