[We did] pretty good considering they had such a big team. The relays [were good]. I hope everybody drops time and improves their technique.”

J. Decker won in both the 200 free (2:01.25) and the 100 back (1:04.60).

Carter Maceno worked off seven seconds from his previous 500 time, ending with a 6:51.98. He also improved by a second in the 200 IM.
