Chile’s boys swim dives into the season, focused on repeating as state champs

The goal is quietly literally to rinse and repeat for the Chiles boys swimming and diving team as they aim to do something that hasn’t been done in five years: repeat as state champions.

It was a collective effort by the Timberwolves that allowed them to take the 2021 3A boys swimming and diving state championship over Tampa Jesuit by 20 points. None of the swimmers finished as individual state champions, but their constant presence on the podium tallied up the points they needed to win as a team.

“We learned that anything can really be done,” junior Ryder Gentry said. “We weren’t really going into it as definite state title winners. We ended up winning by a good amount. This year, coming in, knowing we can do it, it’s not going to be an easy shot, but we’ve got this.”
