David Maurer was recently named the 2015 state swim coach of the year by the National Federation Coaches Association. Maurer’s boys team finished second in the state behind Triple A powerhouse George Washington. His team included Jake Preaskorn and Andrew Boyles, who went onto swim for WVU, and Cassie Oltman who now swims for Cleveland State. Maurer said, “I’m very flattered to receive this award. I never had a team that was more focused and pushed each other like this group of students. I got this award because of what they did.” Maurer will receive the award at the 2016 state swim meet in Morgantown on February 18-19.
