In Brief: Craft to coach District 51 swim team
The District 51 boys swim team has found a new coach. Donald Ray Craft, a three-time CHSAA boys swimming coach of the year during his eight years at Denver East High School, was announced Monday as the new District 51 coach.
Craft, who also coached the successful Denver Tritons club team, has coached numerous high school athletes who have gone on to swim in college.
“I’m just trying to build a quality program,” Craft said. “I want to get the community involved as well as the students who maybe aren’t as familiar with swimming like they are some of the spectator sports. I want to get kids excited about swimming.”
