To say last night’s meet was thrilling would be an understatement! The boys picked up their 12th win to break the record for wins in a season for the program. The record was previously set during the ’94-95 season when Todd Hill’s team went 11-6 in his first year as head coach.
Several athletes broke PRs last night and left it all in the water. Drew Caldwell and Carson Sehy took first in two individual events and two relays to lead the Bruins who improved to 12-4 on the season. Other individual winners were Collin Penrod, Bode Malott, Lance Manley, and Ethan Miller.
