Alex Oishi, Jack Schrader, Evan Zverev, and Ryan Gamble broke the 33 year old school record in the 200 Medley Relay.

Jack Shrader placed second in the 100 Breakstroke, and Ryan Gamble placed second in both the 50 and 100 Freestyle.

The 400 Freestyle Relay, which is swam by Jack Shrader, Ryan Gamble, Alex Oishi, and Michael Lin placed second overall. The time ended up being the third fastest in the state this year.

“It was a really good meet and there was a lot of amazing swims, which was super exciting,” said senior Paul Codd.

Unfortunately, the divers, sophomore Ben Ryan and freshman Evan Martin, did not qualify for Metros.

At the Districts this past weekend, the team, overall, had a good meet.

“We definitely did not do as well as we did at Metros,” said Codd, “But we still did pretty good for swimming in a slow pool.”
