Quoting Coach Armstrong
• “Thanks to USNA for hosting us and to Towson for the great cross-town competition. Our Blue Jays battled through an extra tough week of training and stepped up to the challenge against some great Division I competition! Freshmen Emma McElrath and Noah Frassrand put in great swims and Fabian’s 200/500 double was great! Senior Courtney Cowan broke through with a Hopkins dual meet record in the 200 fly and the women’s 200 free relay followed suit! We learned a lot but were enthused to see the progress from two weeks ago.”
