Pool Party

Spring 2019 – Hill – Pool Party

Denison’s men’s swimming and diving team repeated as NCAA Division III national champions this year. Coach Parini tells us how they did it—and two seniors tell us what it meant to them.

“To end with a championship, especially as a senior, is certainly a blessing—and it would not have been possible without this great team.”
—Kenny Fox ’19

“There’s no better feeling. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to go out. I am so incredibly proud of everyone on this team for what we accomplished this year.”
—Matt Hedman  ’19

“Maintaining our competitive edge starts with a curiosity about our sport and our performance. It’s a process that transcends a focus on winning and moves towards and centers on considering the possibilities of how fast we can go and how well we can perform. Our main competition is ourselves—not necessarily the other team sitting across the way. For us, the question is ‘just how hard can we push ourselves, and how far can we take this thing?’”
—Gregg Parini, Head Coach
