Albemarle's Caleb Smith is the 2017-18 Central Virginia Male Swimmer of the Year.

Over the past two seasons, Smith found his niche in the 500-yard freestyle. Last season, he won a Class 5 state title and set a meet record in the event in 4:33.95 — a record that went unbroken this season. This winter, he beat a highly competitive 500-yard freestyle field at the annual Ben Hair Invitational and took second in the 500 free to help the Albemarle boys win a Class 5, Region D title.
