He has qualified for the WPIAL championships all three years in the 100-yard backstroke and 100 butterfly. He also competed in two relays at WPIALs last season, the 200 medley relay and 200 freestyle relay.

Other returning WPIAL qualifiers for Mount Pleasant are sophomore Dylan Ringer and junior Dillon Zarycki. Ringer competed in two relays at WPIALs along with the 100 backstroke while Zarycki competed on two relay teams.
