Western Albemarle's Dan Bledsoe is the 2017-18 Central Virginia Swimming Coach of the Year.

Bledsoe led a young Western boys team to its second Class 3 state championship in three years, and an even younger girls team to a state runner-up finish. With so many underclassmen on both rosters, expect both Western Albemarle teams to be back in the state championship mix next winter.
