Anyone know how Paige DaCosta is doing this season? He was the 100 back Ivy champion two years ago, but I haven’t heard much about him this season.

He was 22nd in the 200IM last night and qualified 11th in the 100 back today. Great results after recovering from life-threatening injuries from a motorcycle crash last season: https://swimswam.com/ivy-league-champ-paige-dacosta-back-in-the-water-following-motorcycle-accident/

I couldn’t believe he was back in the water less than four months after his accident, that’s incredible. Pretty sure he was also part of a medaling relay team on Day 1.
