The team of Ryan Nicholson, Kevin Miller, Andrew Mikhailichenko and Francis Schickel also set the pool/invite record in the 200 Freestyle relay.

In spite of our rigorous meet schedule over the last week and minimal training, the team rose to the occasion to defend their title.  The team had top 6 finishes in every event except for diving.  Notable swims from Yerko Alpysbay and Chester  Pollack achieving personal bests in the 100 and 50 free respectively.  The team has 5 weeks until their sectional championships in which they look to defend their Section IV class A crown and 3-peat.
