Blue Comes Out On Top In Blue vs Gold Meet

The Blue team came up on top and edged the Gold team in the combined score total and men’s and women’s total. Eight meet records were broken with ten race times faster than the previous record.
“We really built off the moment from the USC Invite and I’m proud of how they swam despite many of them fighting illness,” Lauded Head Coach Marko Djordjevic. “We have a lot of depth. Our returners are very motivated.”
The Tritons will return to Canyonview Aquatic Center next Saturday for the Alumni meet.
