In the 200 Yard Medley Relay, the A-A team of Liam Harris, Gavin Dwyer, Lucian Fioretto and Julian Petrillo beat the long-standing Wellsville pool record with a time of 1:47.53. In the 200 Yard Freestyle Relay, swimmers Harris, Petrillo, Noah Dusinberre and Dwyer broke their second pool record of the night with a time of 1:36.61.

Wellsville stayed competitive all night, with victories in the 100 Yard Backstroke (Joseph Mariotti, 1:06.73), and the 100 Yard Breaststroke (Elijah Brophy, 1:14.17). In diving, the duo of Dylon Day (156.98) and Parker LaBenne (150.22) took all of the points. The Lion’s relay team of Dylon Day, Parker LaBenne, Ethan Crandall, and Elijah Brophy finished the night with a convincing first place swim in the 400 Yard Freestyle Relay (4:10.75).
