Oakton’s state championship 400 free relay team celebrates a great meet that wrapped up with a team state title.

Janet Hu won two events to power Oakton to the girls title, while James Jones and James Murphy took two individual titles each and combined for two relays in Robinson’s boys region victory.
Janet Hu, a Stanford commit, very nearly went her best time in prelims of her high school regional championship meet, and she’s still got many tries left to chase records.
2013 was an incredibly good year for Katie Ledecky. It looks like 2014 isn’t off to a bad start either.
National Age Group Record holder Isabella Rongione, a distance swimmer, will join a training group with the world’s best distance swimmer.
