The team also has five freshman, Michael Kern, Colin Wilcox, Philip Wasson, Matt Burch, Scott Curtis and two exchange students; Peter Kulaes and Isaac Gomez.
Idelson is the only diver, but after placing eighth in the league last season, Rock said she expected him to go even higher this year.
“(He) has worked hard during the off-season,” she said. “He is scoring the second highest scores so far in the Frontier League this season.”
The league has changed classifications around this year, which might help the Redskins. For the first time, the Frontier League will have a C class for the boys. Previously Cooperstown competed with B class teams.
“We have always placed well swimming against those schools,” Rock said. “This year we will be swimming class ‘C’ and we should do very well.”
The other teams in the division are Rome, Holland Patent, Proctor and Sherburne-Earlville.
The team will compete in the Varsity Christmas Relays tomorrow and visit Proctor next Thursday for a dual meet.
