Friday night was a big win for both the Boys and Girls swim teams. Both teams came away as conference champions. The teams led the competition from start to finish, beginning with the Boys' 200 medley relay which produced its best time of the season by more than five seconds. Andrew Lorens '19 won four titles in all, two individually in the 100 free and 100 back, and two as part of the 200 medley and 400 free relays. Zack H'Doubler '17 had the best meet of his career, improving by over ten seconds in the 100 fly and winning a thrilling race in the 100 breast by dropping more than three seconds from what was already a state-qualifying time. Patrick Daly '20 and Liam Hu '20 also recorded best times in each event they swam, and Daniel Byrnes '21 took home four gold medals. On the girls side it was a dominating performance as they outpaced second-place Chatham Hall by a 43-point margin. Swimming fast throughout the meet, the girls won two of the three relays, finishing second by a tenth of a second in the 200 free relay. Natalie Lorens '21 placed first in all four of her events and was bolstered by the strong performances of every one of her teammates. Individual event winners also included Margo Winn '18, Emma Cartledge '18, and Aurora Phlegar '20.
