The highlight of the evening was Christopher Baker breaking the 200 free school record with a time of 1:55.52. He broke the record that was held by Shane Warner (1:56.30) set in 2008-2009.
Also the 200 Girls Free Relays had their best time of the season with a 1:59.72 (Blattler, Wells, Fulst, Gallagher). Also for the girls, Senior Theresa Gallagher had her best time of the season in the 100 free with a 1:05.34.
We have been trying to get under 2:00 in every meet and the girls knew it was time to do it and they did, said coach Bobbi Jo Johnson. I am also thrilled by the fact that the team is now feeling confident enough to try other events. We had several new swimmers in the 200 (Gallaway, Bates, Froehlich) and they did very well. Bates also tried the 500 and had a very good time.
