SUMMIT, NJ - Facing two-time defending state champ Mainland in the NJSIAA Group B Final, the Summit High School Boys Swim knew they had an immense amount of water work ahead of them.

After all, Mustang sophomore Destin Lasco currently holds several national high school records, as do all three of Mainland's relay teams.

As they have all season long, the aquamen from the 07901 swan their hearts out but, despite a valiant effort, the they ultimately were not able to overcome the nationally-recognized depth and power of the Mustangs from Linwood, who captured their third-straight crown by defeating the Hilltoppers 115-55 at The College of New Jersey.
