Still a small team of mostly underclassmen and middle school students, they have their eyes set on taking down long standing records.

The first two records to come down: 200 yard individual medley (previously 2:14.74 placed in 2006) and the 200 Free relay (previously 1:55.09 placed in 2008).

The new individual medley record is now held by Gillian Burch (9th grade) with a time of 2:13.66. This is Burch’s 4th individual record to go up on the board.

The 200 free relay record was crushed with a time of 1:52.97 by Gillian Burch (Fr), Gillian Bartlett (8th), Emily Sulik (8th), and Hailey Morgan (Fr). Each swam a sub 30 second split.

During this meet the team of 12 had 6 sectional qualifying times, including diver Carly Gill (JR).
