Following an incredibly successful high school championships just two weekends ago, many SCSC swimmers went on to compete in the Stanford USA Swimming Grand Prix meet this past weekend, May 20-22, 2005. This meet was the first of the summer series for USA Swimming.

On the men's side, Brian Rose had two excellent swims in the 200 and 400 Free. He clocked a 1:56.1 in the 200, and a 4:03.3 in the 400 Free; both were personal bests.
