In front of a packed crowd, the Phoenix boys (5-1) defended their league title successfully for the 16th consecutive season. The Phoenix girls (6-0) did likewise, placing one or more swimmers in the top 6 in 21 out of the 22 total events. "Virtually everyone brought their A+ game," commented FCS Head Coach Iain Anderson. "This was a very exciting win for our boys' and girls' teams, and I could not be prouder of the job they did!"
