Indian Hill boys make holiday splashes

INDIAN HILL - The Indian Hill High School Braveshave dived into December with a new head coach as former St. Xavier Aquabomber and Emory University NCAA Division III National Championship qualifier John Galvin is leading the aquatic efforts.

Indian Hill was fourth last season and most of the Cincinnati Hills League is again shooting for Wyoming who was taken the last 10 league titles.

Junior Sam Okum returns after making CHL second team in the 200 individual medley and 100 breaststroke. The CHL honorable mention 200 medley relay is also intact with seniors Matt Weisfelder and Nick Saba and juniors Joe Dowling and Okum. Okum also made the Division II state meet in the 100 breaststroke.

Dowling serves as team captain. Max Eihausen, who was injured last year, will also be a factor in freestyle events.

“The juniors and seniors especially have so far done a great job of fostering the team culture while embracing a growth-mindset.” Galvin said. “Many of our more talented swimmers are freshmen, sophomores and juniors, so the group’s success will also depend on underclassmen stepping up and leading day-to-day.”

Also returning for the Braves is CHL first team diver Noah Vigran for diving coach Ray Noble. Vigran was second at the district meet at Miami University and second at the state meet in Canton.

Indian Hill faces Division II champion Seven Hills at Mariemont High School Dec. 19. They’ll be in the Southwest Classic Jan. 14-15 at St. Xavier.
