Individually, the Bison also performed very well. Louis Behnen ’17 placed first in both the 1000-yard freestyle and the 500-yard freestyle. Following Behnen in the 500 free were teammates Denver Freeman ’17, Sam Rutan ’18, and Brian Phillips ’16, finishing second through fourth, respectively. Chris Devlin ’18 placed first in the 100-yard individual medley and second in the 200-yard backstroke, followed by teammate Will Rappaport ’16 in third.

Overall, the team was quite pleased by the performances.
