106 ■ THE WOLFPACKER (No. 15). Additionally, the website stated that Kimani Gregory "was one of the top swimmers outside our top 20 recruits." Holloway noted that the newcomers are adjusting to the realities of major college swimming. "I would say the expectations might have surprised a lot of them," Holloway said. "Obviously there's high standards in this program, and the team holds everybody accountable. "I think the expectations kind of rocked a few of them pretty hard. Now they under- stand what it means." All together, Holloway has a team with a few headliners remaining but a lot of oth- ers ready to start making names for them- selves. "It's kind of exciting, because we haven't been in this situation in a while," Holloway said. "We're just a young team, but I think in a way it's nice because for the first time in four years we're the underdog. "I think we can kind of use that to our advantage." ■ James A.

WWW.WHITEVILLELAW.COM Noting The Pack • Men's swimming and diving head coach Braden Holloway believes his team should be an under- dog, but his peers disagree. The College Swimming Coaches Association of America ranked NC State third nationally in its preseason poll. • The Summer Olympics return in 2020 in Tokyo, Japan, and that means that swimmers are allowed to take what is termed an "Olympic redshirt." The student-athletes can freeze their eligibility and train for the Olympics. One swimmer at NC State has been confirmed using the Olympic redshirt. Junior Giovanni Izzo, a native of Italy, will sit out the season for NC State. Izzo is a valuable member of NC State's relays and was the anchor swimmer on the Pack's second-place 200 freestyle relay at nationals.
