GIRLS' SWIMMING AND DIVING COACH OF THE YEAR: Roy Chaney, Manitou Springs

In six seasons, Roy Chaney has built and developed one of the area's fastest-improving teams.

Except he'd rather not take credit for any of it. He's not the one swimming.

"I'm overwhelmed with their efforts," said Chaney, whose Mustangs finished a school-record sixth at the recently held 4A state meet in Fort Collins. "The whole team has worked well together to get us here. I owe this to the girls because they have worked hard for me."

At the 2013 Independent League meet, Manitou served notice as a team on the rise by winning its first championship in 13 years. At the state meet, however, the Mustangs scored only a handful of points, finishing 17th in the team race.

But the fuse had been lit.

"We're young, so we're just going to get better in the next few years," Chaney said. "I've coached a long time, and I'm constantly amazed by the effort of such a small group of girls."
