Swimming & Diving

The swim & dive Rocks traveled across the river and lost a tough dual meet to Jeffersonville on Jan. 29. The squad captured several events, including David Bunnell winning the 200 freestyle, Joey Domhoff capturing the 1-meter diving, and Chandler Lichtefeld winning the 200 IM and the 100 breaststroke.

Also capturing first place was the 200 freestyle relay team of Lichtefeld, Chris Parrill, Chris Owen and Michael Gilligan.

Track & Field

The track Rocks competed in the Wildcat Classic at the University of Kentucky's indoor facility.

Despite the recent cold, the Rocks were blistering hot. Sophomore Santo Biddix and freshman Caleb Costin are young Rocks who produced strong efforts. Andrew Ireland finished second in the 800 meters, and junior J.B. Boyle nearly tied a meet record on his way to setting a personal-best record in the pole vault and finishing in second place.

The highlight of the meet for the Rocks was the 1,600-meter relay team that came out of the second heat to roar to victory behind the balanced and fluid running of Kyle Smith, Aaron Gilcrease, Patrick Martinette and Michael Cawood.


The wrestling Rocks finished in third place at the State Wrestling Duals at Montgomery County on Feb. 1. 


* Senior Reggie Bonnafon signed a national letter of intent to play football at the University of Louisville next season.  


* Jack Harrison committed to play football for Centre College.
