Eight Pirates (five in individual events, 3 in relays only) competed at the USA Swimming Junior Nationals held at Stanford August 9-13.
The men's 400 Medley Relay team (Thomas Mercurio, Shintaro Noguchi, Kenneth Castro Abrams and Richard Davison; pictured above) dropped a whopping 8 seconds off their qualifying time to place 12th.
In individual events, Richard Davison took 15th in the 100 m Fly and Shintaro Noguchi placed 20th.
The Pirates recorded 13 best times out of 17 races.
