Congratulations and Good Luck at HS States, Cohos!
Coach John McGuire has high praise for all Coho Nation swimmers representing their high schools during this boys’ season.  His observations compliment both racing skill and sportsmanship, exemplified by the gracious conduct of Cohos and Kensington Conference Champions Dan Mullen (200 & 100 free, Canton) and Parker Wasielewski (50 free, 100 back, Stevenson).  The MHSAA Boys’ Championships are scheduled for March 9 & 10 (D1 at EMU; D2 at OU; D3 at SVSU).  Good luck at the HS State Championships, Coho Nation!
