2021 season preview
Co-head coaches: Ed Roussel and Tom Farrell
2019-20 record: 5-5
Key swimmers lost to graduation: Liam Farrell, Sam Hicks
Key returnees: Philip Lee ’21, Fred Li ’21, Joe Noto ’21, Patrick Lichtner ’22, Kamil Rozanski Jr. ’22, and James Samuel Jr. ’22
2021 season outlook: Co-head coaches Ed Roussel and Tom Farrell, along with assistant coach Tracy Wilson, have the makings of strong Holy Ghost Prep swim team in 2021, thanks to the return of a number of 2020 PIAA state qualifiers. In fact, returnees Patrick Litchtner, Philip Lee, and Fred Li were three-quarters of both HGP’s 2020 PIAA state qualifying 200 freestyle relay team and 200 medley relay teams and show no signs of slowing down in 2021. Li and Litchner were also 2020 PIAA state qualifiers in the 100 butterfly and 100 freestyle, respectively. Senior captain Joe Noto and junior James Samuel are two other gifted returnees who will bear watching this winter. Samuel was an alternate on the state qualifying 200 freestyle relay team last season, while Noto was an alternate on the 200 medley relay team. Both figure to be consistent scorers in every meet in 2021 for the Firebirds.
