Many heat winners, some event winners and team records marked a weekend of great swimming.

Nicole Eklund's 100 free and final swims in 200 and 400IM

Aditya Jalihal had a great meet and had great closing speed in all races.
Drew Downs had a great meet, qualifying for Sectionals, and had great closing speed as well.
Mason Miler broke his own 100 free 13/14 SRVLA record by 1.5 seconds going an exceptional 48.2. and his 100 fly relay split of 52.7 was pretty impressive as well.
The team was impressive to watch. Parents on other teams were remarking on how fast our team finishes races. All planned and worked for, over the last 6 months. The team did a great job of planning the work and working the plan.
