The Gazette Boys' Swimming and Diving Peak Performer of the Year: Caleb Hicks, Air Academy
Wed, Jul 27, 2016 - 11:50 AM
By March, doubt was creeping into the mind of Caleb Hicks.
In his senior year swimming for Air Academy, Hicks was struggling to make sense of a frustrating season. He couldn't win races in his primary events and was unable to clock his normal times.
"I had won races at dual meets but I hadn't won a single race at any invite," Hicks said. "I didn't know if my training was off or something was wrong."
He took two weeks off in the spring, stopped swimming and focused on rest.
Just over a month later, Hicks won the Class 4A 100-yard butterfly title, breaking his state record and earning All-American honors with a time of 49.19 seconds.
