028 POISE AND CONSISTENCY IN THE LONG BLUE LANE
by Annie Grevers
Men who have been fortunate enough to be a part of the legendary St. Xavier High School swimming tradition in Cincinnati, Ohio know what it means to belong to the “The Long Blue Lane.” But the members of the exclusive group also realize how instru­mental their years as St. X Aquabombers were to their character development.

032 THE X FACTOR
by Annie Grevers
St. Xavier swimmers knew they could do something pretty impressive during the 2016-17 high school season. By “doing the work and putting in the time,” Coach Tim Beerman’s Aquabombers won Swimming World’s boys’ national high school champi­onships, securing its fourth title to go along with team victories in 1973, 1992 and 2001.

044 SPECIAL SETS: TRAINING FOR EXCELLENCE IN THE INDIVIDUAL MEDLEY
by Michael J. Stott
This is the first of a two-part series on train­ing for the individual medley, which requires time, sacrifice, incredible endurance and speed to achieve world-class status. This month, Coaches Ted Knapp and Jeff Kostoff share “the Stanford way” of training their IMers. Next month: North Baltimore Aquatic Club coach Paul Yetter will provide some of his IM training secrets.

046 SWIMMING TECHNIQUE MISCONCEPTIONS: STROKE COUNTS
by Rod Havriluk
This month’s article addresses the miscon­ception that a lower stroke count represents a more effective technique. While stroke counts can provide meaning­ful feedback about technique, swimmers often make technique adjustments that lower their stroke count, but do not necessarily make their tech­nique more effective.

ON THE COVER

With an awe-inspiring performance this season, St. Xavier High School of Cincinnati, Ohio—coached by Tim Beerman—was crowned Swimming World’s 2016-17 boys’ national high school champions. The school’s winning tradition spans over the decades: not only have the Aqua­bombers captured four national titles since their first in 1973, but the team has also won 38 of the last 47 Division I Ohio State High School Championships and has never lost a district meet since 1959.
