The Coed 8 x 25 Medley Relay of Addie Rose Bullock, Ben McClain, Brett Reason, Brinson Griffeth, Zach Lowe, Gabby Auerbach, Jenna Ardagna, and Zach Lowe broke the meet and school record with a time of 1:39.23, breaking the old school record by over 6 seconds.
Overall, the Mustangs won 10 of the 19 relays.
This was the Mustangs 6th Invitational victory (out of 7 invitationals) this season, the most ever in the history of the program.
After the regular meet, the senior relay swim was crazy, with the Kennesaw team wearing animal (often fur) onesies. I amsure the heavy fur hurt their times.
Thanks to the team for working so hard... and thanks to the coaches for making the team a success. Also, thank you to all the volunteers who have helped throughout the year.
The Mustangs head to Georgia Tech next weekend for the State Championship meet.
