Remarks from head coach Angela Brunk:

Salina was our first win of the season and it was good to get the win. We finished qualifying all of our relays for state and qualified a few more individual swimmers for events. We won over half of the events at this meet, and we placed within the top three in every event. It wasn’t one of our faster swim meets and we didn’t get a ton of best times, but we did place well. We will be back in the pool on Thursday at Campus.
