The boys had 118 points, trailed by GW (101), Franklin (76), Bassett (74), Martinsville (59) and Magna Vista (25).

“We had to swim our best times of the year. Every team there seemed to be swimming better. We had to compete as a team and pull in high total points in every event. I was proud of the way we competed and came together as a team to cheer each other on. It wasn’t one person for themselves, we were one team working towards a title,” said coach Shawn Torian.
