Got Game: Shane Ryan

By Christopher Parish

Name: Shane Ryan
School: Haverford School
Sport: Swimming

Got Game: Lost amid all the praise that was heaped on former Hershey star David Nolan last season was Ryan's impressive performance at the Class AAA state meet. Ryan beat Nolan's old state record in the 100 backstroke by 0.04 seconds. But because Ryan finished second to Nolan in the race, his time went largely unnoticed — Nolan won the state title, set a new state record and earned the glory. But now Nolan is at Stanford, and that means Ryan, a senior, has a clear path to win the state crown and earn all of the accolades that come with it.
