Coach David Closs utilized the full roster to gain a sweep in the 100 backstroke as well.  Duytam Vu finished first followed by Wong and DelDuca. Zarrelli took first in the 100 breaststroke and 100 butterfly to complete the night with four first place finishes. 

In the final relay, GL finished in first second and third.  DelDuca, Evan Wallace, Jimmy Pitingolo, and O’Brien placed first, while the team of Sam Lee, Michael Bittner, Jack Siburn and Noam Rotenburg finished a close second. 

O’Halloran summed up the night for the Highlanders, “we have a lot of depth and it showed tonight, it was a real team effort.”
