The Aqua Tigers defeated the Gators by a score of 434-304, and had high point scores from 24 swimmers in the final meet.

Jacob McDaniel, Zach Bianucci and Jason Chung all finished with 17 points.

High point scoring was rounded out by Tiffany Harricharran, Max Cooper and Logan Stutzman with 10 points apiece.
CAT will have the next few days to rest up before the Chattanooga Area Swim League City Meet championships, which will take place at the Baylor School on Friday and Saturday. Coach DeBusk has high hopes for her team, especially when it comes to her relay swimmers.
“I’m hoping that we saved some of that for Friday and Saturday,” DeBusk commented. “We have specific relays that I feel will do very well at the City Meet.”
The Aqua Tigers will go into the City Meet with a perfect 8-0 record.
