Eric Culver, New Paltz High School graduate and several time Section 9 title winner for the varsity swim team, has his eyes set on competing in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. The 22-year-old swimmer, who is going into his senior year at the University of Buffalo, a Division One school, has just returned home to New Paltz after competing at the US Nationals, where he popped an Olympic trial-cut time in the 200-Meter Butterfly with a 2:02.9. “I was very happy with that,” said the ever-humble Culver. “I’m used to training in a short-course yard [SCY] pool, and transitioning to long-course meters [LCM, an Olympic-sized pool] was a challenge.”
