Day one finals results

Before that big swim, Jensen swam a 22.04 to lead off the Upper Dublin medley relay, which got a notable 24.67 breaststroke leg from Wyatt Amdor. They went on to win with a time of 1:30.99, with Upper St. Clair taking 2nd.

La Salle was the big scorer on the day. They started off with a 5th place showing in the 200 medley relay, following that up with two top-8 finishes in the 200 free. Jake Sannem touched 2nd in that race (1:35.44) behind Jensen’s 1:33.90, with Joseph Vizza taking 4th (1:38.61).

Greg Brocato went 20.01 in the 50 free, nearly venturing under 20 seconds, to win the 50 free. This earned La Salle a big twenty points to add to their total.

Brocato (20.22), Vizza (20.63), Sean Finlay (21.07) and Sannem (19.92) teamed up to take the 200 free relay by well over a full second, highlighted by that big sub-20 split from Sannem.

Other winners on the day included James Wilson in the 100 fly (48.98) and Tre Fissella in the 200 IM (1:50.78). Wilson swims for Conestoga Valley, while Fissella competes for Hempfield.
