Even though Evanston and Maine South are competitive in virtually every sport, ETHS has beaten the Hawks by at least 65 points in every meet for the past five years and look to continue that dominance tonight.

    “Usually our advantage against Maine South is our depth,” coach Kevin Auger said. “We have more kids that are more talented.”

     Both senior diver Harel Anolick, who recently committed to Duke University, and senior swimmer Aidan Dillon, who committed to University of Minnesota, echoed Auger’s point about the team’s great depth.

     Last year, against Maine South, Anolick took the diving title and set a then personal record cumulative score of 330.65 for six dives.

   In last year’s contest with the Hawks, graduated seniors Evan Ziolkowski, Charlie Davis, Sean McGuire, Danny Managlia and Thomas Fies all also scored wins in their individual events. Dillon also had two victories in the 200 yard individual medley and the 500 yard freestyle with times of 2:06.27 and 4:57.08 respectively.

      In tonight’s meet, Maine South will likely look for points in the various relays. On Dec. 2 the Hawks won the blue division of the Maine East Invite. They counted victories in the 400 yard freestyle relay, the 300 butterfly relay and the 200 freestyle relay. Both Evan Clauss and Brendan Forrest were members of all three relay teams.

     Evanston has one of the best diving teams in the state as both Anolick and junior Trevor Nelson finished inside the top 10 at last year’s state finals, Anolick in fifth place scoring a 474.45 for 11 dives, and Nelson in ninth tallying a 545.55.

     After Maine South, the Kits will travel to Winnetka to face off against the Trevians on Jan. 5.
