Erica Soster posted some great times tonight as well, and I think she can have just an awesome year," GHS head coach Luke Beasley said.

"Everyone swam well tonight, and we posted a lot of season-best times," Beasley commented. "I was really happy with the intensity the girls brought to this meet. I wanted the girls to swim with confidence, and they did that tonight."
