Leave it to the prep school to swim in SCM 🙂

Seriously though, that’s a pretty impressive time for any high school team. Well done

SCM? Who swims SCM in HS? After conversion it’s over 3s slower than the SCY national record.

Interesting to see they shaved & suited up for the first dual meet of the winter high school season simply to take down this record…So fast!

This relay team didn’t shave for this relay. They simply suited up to see what they could they could do in their first scm meet.
