This swim season started with a dual against 6A Bartlesville, and the Comets took second place. This year, the boys swim team is the strongest it has ever been. With both Callan brothers and some new talented freshman, the boys have a good chance at winning state this year. Patrick Callan (12) is looking forward to keeping the swim tradition in the family.

“I’m excited to finish off my high school career swimming with my little brother,” Senior Patrick Callan said.

Patrick’s little brother, Jack Callan (10), won both of his individual events at state last year plus helped lead the two boys’ relays to first place.

The boys broke the state record in their relays and took 3rd place overall at state last year. Last year was probably the first time Jack Callan was recognized for his talent because most people do not realize that there is another talented Callan brother.    

“Swimming is a fun experience for anyone who wants to try,” Jack said.

High school swimming is quite a bit different than club swimming. High school is only in season for a few months, whereas club is year round.

Most people underestimate how hard swimming can be. Many people say they started swimming for fun, but realized it was a lot harder than planned. If one plays multiple sports but needs to stay in shape in between seasons then swimming is a great way to do that.  

It is never too late to start something new.

Sophomore River Kirkland started swimming in a way most people wouldn’t.

He said “I only started swimming because of my name and I realized I actually liked it,” Kirkland said.

River had tried several sports in the past but nothing had stuck. When he started swimming his freshman year, Coach Sean Callan, the father of the Callan brothers, told River he had potential and needed to pursue swimming more than just high school.

Swim is very time consuming, but the bonds made with teammates are unbreakable.
