After a year hiatus, Cheshire High School announced on Thursday that Kevin Reeder would be returning to their athletic program as the boys’ swim and dive head coach. From 2014-2018, Reeder coached the Rams to a 36-5-1 dual-meet record, including a perfect regular season (11-0) and Southern Connecticut Conference regular-season title in 2016.
Under Reeder, Cheshire finished runner-up in the SCC title meet from 2015-17. In 2016, the Rams placed second in Class LL.
Citing his work schedule at ESPN and family committments, Reeder chose to retire at the end of the 2017-18 season, but with a job change, he decided to go back into coaching. At CHS, Reeder will succeed Megan Severino, who coached the Rams to a 9-2 season before stepping down over the summer.
