Without a single diver and with a roster of 11 athletes, Community took the Intercity title for the 2nd straight year.

The boys swim team won the Intercity meet for the second consecutive year Tuesday, Jan. 25, besting intercity rival Normal West by 22 points.

Community’s 11-man roster tallied 494 points for the Ironmen to West’s 472.

“Our strongest trait,” senior Tyson Tucci said, “is our depth. Our depth is … better than most teams.” 

That depth helped Community overcome the fact the team has no divers. 

West, with a roster boasting of 23 athletes, earned 43 points in the diving portion of the competition, placing 3rd, 5th, and 6th in the event.  

For the Ironmen, Tucci, Josh Fujimoto (’23), and Kenneth Wills (’24) placed 1st in all four of their events. Each recorded a pair of first-place finishes in individual events and helped secure two wins apiece in the relays.  

Community took first in all but two of the competition’s 11 swimming events.

Sophomore Josh Svob took 2nd in 200-yd. individual medley and the 100-yd. breaststroke, finishing behind U-High’s Camden Swigart in both races.

The team competes next at the Big 12 Conference meet Saturday, Feb. 5, where they look to replicate their success.

“I think we have a good shot to win,” Tucci said.
