FOREST CITY | Entering his fifth year as coach, Brian Hovenga hopes to build on a successful season for Forest City.

The Indians have 12 returners who lettered last season, including seniors Brady Cantu, Seth Brock, Jordan Spooner, Randy Vaughan, Micah Lambert and Gabe Staudt.

Last season, the Indians placed first in the conference, and they were also district champions.

Last year’s squad set a spring medley relay record and sent eight events to the state meet.

In addition to that core group of seniors, the Indians have talented competitors in Ben Marmaras, Jon Warren, Xav Holland, Javin Pedelty and Caleb Buffington.

“We have a group of young men that are working hard to earn their spot,” Hovenga said.
