Peter Kropp split an incredibly fast breast leg on Duke’s victorious 400 medley relay.
Duke’s freshmen put up four wins against Pitt, and freshmen and sophomores were the team’s highest finishers in every single event in the season opener.
Olvia Ontjes from YOTA, meanwhile, skipped the 50 free to focus on the 200 breast this year, and so far the decision has paid off.
Caitlynn Moon broke a YMCA national record, while Brandon Sweezer won a thrilling comeback to begin YMCA Long Course Nationals.
Duke Coach Dan Colella: “We’re really excited about the men and women that are going to be joining us and what they’re going to be able to contribute immediately in their freshman year. They’re going to have a big impact.”
