As one of the team’s tri-captains this past season, he heelped lead the Jesuit swimming and diving team to its 10th consecutive SCC title and runner-up finishes at the LL and State Open championships.

He would also lead off the All-American 400 freestyle relay (3:01.08), which currently ranks third in the country.

In his senior year, he was instrumental in the creation of a film club at Prep and in the direction and editing of a film series highlighting a yearlong “Day in the Life” of one of his classmates.
Wargo has also been active in service both near and far. He has participated in mission service trips to New Orleans, Nashville and the Overland Farm (Massachusetts) hunger relief initiative, as well as assisting locally at the Gillespie Center homeless shelter/Homes with Hope organization and working annually on the Saugatuck River clean-up.
Wargo has utilized his talents through his participation in the Swim Across the Sound, raising thousands of dollars for cancer patients and their families, for which he received the Maura F. Marden Dream of Life Award.
