Ah the infamous Luca Orlando


Burdisso vs Urlando in that 200 fly should be a juicy battle. Both are miles ahead of any other juniors in that race.


I feel like that’s going to be a solid NCAA matchup too in 2 years… Northwestern might finally be fun to watch again.

“Germany – Luca Armbruster”

Skimming the list I 100% thought that said, “Armbuster.”
