Lauren James had the fastest time in the girls 10 and over 400 IM. Sean O'Connell took the blue ribbon in 2 events - the 11-12 boys 50 and 200 free. Last, but not least, Jessie Williams took home the gold in the 10 and under girls 100 fly. Lauren James' time in the 400 IM sets a new 11-12 girls team record. Way to go!
