The jugmen traveled to WFB on January 7 and swam in a tightly contested race with the JV and varsity taking the wins.
The highlight of the meet was the final event of the night, 400 freestyle relay. This event has typically been a tightly contested event between these two schools and the winner takes home bragging rights for the year. A long standing tradition between the teams. WFB has held bragging rights for the last three years. The jugmen put together an all sophomore relay team of Joe Lorenz, Drew Testin, Connor Kwiatkowski and Devin Testin. They won in a very close finish!!
