“I am super happy with our performance,” Newton coach Kim Powell said. “Simon Hodge had an amazing meet. Luke Schmidt had an amazing meet. They did really well. Several of them dropped big times today. (The field) was super competitive. We were at the top of the middle. That’s what we’re going to call it. That’s a good place to be with this kind of competition.”

James Tyrell took fourth in the 100-yard butterfly in 1:05.95.

Andrew Barron took fourth in the 100-yard backstroke in 1:05.04.
