Head Coach, Allen Gilchrest commented, "We are only in our 3rd year as a program, we finished the dual meet season with a very strong record at 7-1, our men have worked hard all season as a team, it shows in our record, they are now looking to become a conference championship team.
Last season the men won 2 events at the conference championships, this year they have the potential to win 10 events. I can't wait to cheer on our men and watch them swim fast, giving God the Glory!"
