There was some crazy fast swimming today. Way too many incredible individual performances to list. Tons of best times in the morning and almost all best times in the afternoon. Such a wonderful group of athletes. Going into finals, BYST pretty much had an athlete in every race. Relays were exceptionally fast and the team placed top three numerous times. Way to go BYST!!!

Melissa Dingle swam in her first...
