Mascenic swam well despite the fact that early in the meet one of the Viking swimmers suffered a medical emergency. The team discussed the situation and decided to continue competing at the meet because they knew their teammate would want them to. Several Mascenic swimmers stepped up to the occasion and finished in the top 5 or had PRs (personal records) with one swimmer qualifying for states.

The Vikings finished fifth on both the boys’ and girls’ sides.

Junior Sam Tucker had an awesome swim in the 100 Yard Backstroke swimming to a PR and a State Qualifying time of 1:10.24.
