Last week, many of the country’s top age group swimmers descended on Orlando, Florida for the NCSA Spring Championship. While the meet provided plenty of highlights,

Arguably the meet’s biggest star was Greater Toledo’s Scott Buff, who won five events and downed several meet records along the way. The 17 year old high school junior is committed to join the University of Florida in the fall of 2023, and after this meet projects to have a massive immediate impact for the Gators.

Buff’s results included:

50 back: 21.23 (1st, Meet Record)

100 back: 45.89 (1st)

200 back: 1:44.88 (4th)
