The boys team finished fifth overall with 143.5 points, while the girls team placed 14th overall with 25 points.
"Bode finished off his impressive sophomore season by winning his first individual state championship in the 500 freestyle," head coach Greg Warren said. "I was very proud of how he swam overall at States and his entire season as well. Bode has truly become one of our leaders both in the pool and out."

"Both our boys and girls swam really well at the NCISAA meet," Warren said. "Most of our swims were either at or very close to best times, and that's all I can expect. To have three boys earn podium spots was a great showing for our team as we look towards next season with all three swimmers returning."
