The lineup we swam tonight is the same that we will swim in sectional. We are trying to get them prepared. In the sectional we will have a little more time in between events and if the boys can keep it up, I think we can get a boy into the finals in each event.”For a more in-depth look at this story, see the Feb. 8 issue of The Post and Mail.
