St. Xavier is looking to continue its dominance in the boys’ competition.  The AquaBombers captured first place in eight of the 11 events last year to win the GCL championship again.  St. Xavier has now won 67 GCL titles, including the last 52 in a row.  The AquaBombers would go on to win their seventh consecutive Division I state title and No. 36 in their storied swimming and diving history.

St. Ursula Academy is the defending GGCL champion.  The Bulldogs finished as the state runner-up last year too.
