“I couldn’t be more happy for how we swam today,” exclaimed coach Pete Small. “During the course of the season, we were trying to do different things and today was race...without question. We had a lot of swimmers drop a lot of time today, we always do. These kids have been working so hard, a lot of it is just clicking at just the right time.”
