The Weston High boys' swim team is on an historic run in the pool.

Seventy-seven straight dual meet victories. Eight consecutive Division 2 state titles.

The man at the controls is Pete Foley, now in his 35th and final season as coach.

And his talented squad has every intention of ending their highly regarded mentor's career with another title.

"Even last spring, the [returning] kids were talking about what it would take to keep it going, it would be nine [state titles] in a row," said Foley, whose squad opened the season with five straight victories.
