DHS boys swim history rich in team, individual worth

From page B2 | February 26, 2013 |

Of Davis High’s 113 Sac-Joaquin Section titles, 50 of those pennants were earned in swimming pools. Twenty-three of those come from the boys water polo (14) and swim (nine) squads.

A quick look at Blue Devil swim history shows some sparkling efforts.

There was the run of Allen brothers — Jake, Wade and Trevor — which saw Jake become an eight-time All-American at Stanford after setting section records in the 50-yard freestyle (20.35) and the 100 free (44.72). Both established in 2007, the marks still stand.

DHS won eight consecutive swim crowns from 1996 to 2003 after taking its first championship back in 1988. Eight other times, the Devils finished second in the region.

Keenan Newman — a 2003 graduate of DHS — also holds two SJS standards. In ’02, Newman buzzed through the water in 55.74 for a 100 breaststroke record, which he now shares with Blue Devil junior Matt Whittle, who posted his speedy swim last year. A 1:47.31 in his senior season gave Newman the section’s 200 individual medley mark.

Last season, Davis’ 200 medley relay squad set a new Sac-Joaquin mark of 1:33.94.

So, despite the storied past, with a solid cast of veteran swimmers in the 2013 Blue Devil fold, it could be that the local boys’ historic accomplishments are just starting.
