Senior Tributes: Boys Swimming

In recognition of the contributions our graduating seniors have made to our athletic programs, we offer these tributes from our coaches and some of our upper mids on each varsity team:

Jeffrey Lim -- Elegant and precise in everything he does, Jeffrey was a major contributor to our success for the last three years, both through his fast swimming and his thoughtfulness and sheer kindness. The second-best 100 butterflyer in Hotchkiss history, Jeffrey also was a member of the school-record 400-yard freestyle relay at New Englands in 2020. He gave our team its style and brand and he will certainly be missed. (Head Coach Keith Moon)

Royce Shey -- Exuberant and daring, Royce in many ways has been the heart of this team in his four years at Hotchkiss. Royce was a key member of the 400 freestyle relay school-record team at New Englands in 2020 and brought his unique energy and vitality to the pool deck every day, even in the midst of a pandemic. He will be sorely missed. (Moon)

Chris Tolis -- Eternally and magnificently understated, Chris has been a loyal and crucial member of our team for four years. It's hard to imagine more commitment than when Chris actually broke a finger finishing a relay leg as an upper mid at the Founders League championship. It was a tough way to end the season, but his dedication to Hotchkiss Swimming was obvious to all. We're fortunate to have another younger Tolis still on the team! (Moon)

William Wildish -- A two-year captain, William held this team together when it was in some jeopardy of splintering apart. Endlessly dedicated to Hotchkiss Swimming, William also stands as one of the fastest swimmers ever to swim for the Blue; his final leg of the school-record 400 Yard freestyle relay at New Englands in 2020 was a brilliant 46.1, the second-fastest swim in Hotchkiss history. If Royce Shey was the team's heart for the last four years, William was certainly its soul. We will miss him greatly. (Moon)
