Coach name: Christian Bonner

LAST YEAR RECORD (results in league/CCS): 3rd in the CCS 200 yard medley relay behind Los Gatos and Bellarmine College Prep.

Quote from player or coach: “I think that we did well last year. It is definitely a lot of hard work and practice, so we should just follow what the coaches want us to do, practice hard, and not slack off,” Chad Nachiappan said.

Prognosis (quick summary of what we expect this season) : This year the Falcon boys are coming off a good performance during their season a year ago. Though the Falcons have lost two key players who are now swimming at the college level, the Falcons have found a handful of new swift freshmen who are capable of filling in the void sometime in the future.
