Swimmer of the Year Candidate - Patrick Callan '18 (As a sophomore, Patrick was the Swimmer of the Year) - 200 IM - "Patrick Callan dominated the pool, going the entire season without losing an individual race. He won 5A state championship events in the 200-yard individual medley and the 100 butterfly, setting state records in both of them, and they weren’t even his usual events, as he already owned 5A state records in the 200 and 500 freestyle, the races he won at last year’s state meet. Callan also anchored state championship-winning 200 and 400 freestyle relays, with the Comets setting a state record in the 400. “He’s such an easy kid to coach because he’s just so willing to do anything to make himself better,” Glasgow said. “He’s extremely hard-working and just an all-around good kid.” (As a freshman, Patrick was selected 1st team (200 Freestyle, 500 Freestyle).Honorable Mention - Riley Crismon '17, Rafael Serrano '182nd Team - Beth Grundy '17 - 100 Breaststroke - (As a junior, Beth was 1st Team (100 breaststroke.

The Comets enjoyed a comfortable 29-stroke cushion en route to the championship, a week after cruising to a regional title. The Comets also claimed tournament championships at the Coweta, McAlester and Tahlequah invitationals leading up the postseason play.Shawn Lawhorn (Shawn also won this award in 2012 & 2013).Player of the Year Candidate - Mika Ramos '20 - Entering the Class 5A state tournament at Quail Creek Golf and Country Club in Oklahoma City, Ramos never expected to win an individual state championship. Instead, she won it by five strokes — as a freshman. “The moment they announced my name as the 5A state champion,” she said, “was so incredibly special.” The Comets have won eight individual crowns in the program’s 24 years, and Ramos became the fifth to claim the title. “I play it back in my head,” she said, “and even now, weeks later, it is still so unbelievable.” Prior to the state tournament, Ramos also claimed medalist honors at the Skiatook Invitational and Class 5A state preview tournament.Honorable MentionAllison Hammer '17, Avery Allen '18, Lauren Martin '18

After completing her high school career with 61 goals and 18 assists, Ertl will play at Arkansas State next season. “She’s really a difference-maker for us,” Comets coach Troy Tokarchik said. “She has had a fantastic career. She’s been our Golden Boot winner for the past three years. It doesn’t get any better than that.”
