The 200 Freestyle Relay team of Griffey, Strunk, Sipes, and Atterson placed 2nd, and the 400 Freestyle Relay team of Hall, Atterson, Sipes, and Criswell finished the meet in 2nd place.
We were really happy with how our boys swam. We couldn’t have asked for a better effort from them all. Much like the girls, they are supporting and encouraging each other so much more than any other group I’ve had in my time here. That goes a long way into the success of the team, and also makes everyone want to swim fast. I’m so excited with the group we have, and I am really looking forward to seeing what this group can accomplish. We have a good opportunity to get a win on Tuesday night against Muncie Central.
