The Bee's Spring All-Stars: Boys Swimming Coaching Kudos
• Adam Reid, Clovis West: Directed his third straight Division I championship performance since taking over from Steve Baxter as coach, and the Golden Eagles' 16th overall, Clovis West finished with 488 points, 186 more than second place Clovis. Reid's swimmers clocked four All-America or consideration times while producing top-three finishes in all 11 events, including titles from the 200 medley and 400 free relays and Justin Wright in the 200 free, and diver Colby Evangelinos was fourth.
• Bill Freeman, Tulare: Guided the Redskins to their second straight Division II championship, outscoring second-place Kingsburg 266-237 despite not having an individual event champion. Tulare did, however, win both the 200 free and 400 free relays, and Eric Schlick was second in the 50 free and third in the 100 free. The Redskins had at least one swimmer in the A final in 10 of 11 events, and had the eighth-place diver. Freeman also received a Coaching Kudo for directing Tulare's boys water polo team to the 2013 D-II title.
