Despite attrition, Hampton swim relay still strong

Written by Cara De Carlo on .

Cara De Carlo's feature on the Hampton boys' swim team:

"Hampton senior Jake Kocsis is adapting to a new role.

A year ago, Kocsis was a part of Hampton's 200- and 400-yard freestyle relay team. The Talbots took fourth and third place in those events at the 2012 WPIAL Class AA championship meet. But after graduation losses and changes in personnel, Kocsis anchors a rejuvenated relay team.

He's happy about it, too. Kocsis and three sophomores (his brother Ben, plus Daniel Williams and Matthew Bonino) form the relay squad. They bring speed to a finish like a high-octane jetboat."
