The Last Swim

Conference is over. What a long, wonderful week of swimming. 
The women finished in 2nd place, one place up from last year. The men finished 3rd with 56 points separating them from first place. They also moved up this year compared to last year's finish. 

All relay records were broken on both sides. The last race of the night was the men's 400 free relay. The previous record was a 3:02.48 and this team of guys had been gunning for that record all season long. They finished with a time of 3:00.68, with a senior anchoring the relay with a personal best split of 45.36. It was an extremely gratifying race to watch as a coach and something that I will always remember because of my connection with each one of those guys.
