"The boys did great," said Wildcat head coach John-Jay Verhuel. "Cody had another great meet, Matt Scanlin had a great swim in the 100 back and Owen Ragland had good swims in the 50 free and two relay swims. The boys are really starting to swim fast. We had a tough workout yesterday (Thursday), and all the boys did great today (Friday). They are on track for a great season."

The short-handed Wildcat girls suffered an 85-84 defeat.

Sonora competed without five varsity swimmers.

The Wildcats started off the meet strong by finishing 1-2-3 in the 200 free.
