"To tie the meet we would have to take 1-2 in the last relay. I knew our 400 free relay could have won the event, but I split the relays to even them up in the hopes that we could take 1-2," said O-M Coach Terri Brace. "We came up a little short, but the girls really left it all in the pool tonight and I couldn't be more proud of them. We had some amazing swims and many best times."
