But, something more stressful than college is also on our way before the school year ends: IB and AP testing.

Opening the meet was the 200-yard medley relay featuring swimmers Quinn Yeager, Corey Lau, Marco Conati, and Sam Schilling, who swam an All-American time of 1:29.20 to break a national public high school record. This record was set only a week before at the Indiana high school state championship with a time of 1:29.64.
