Boys Score: 361 for 2nd place
The Red Devil boys followed with the same tone that the Red Devil girls set for the Hoosier Conference Swimming and Diving Championships: Prepared and ready for competing! In the first boys swimming race on Saturday, the 200 Medley Relay team of Ray Li, Lucas Arnaldo, Braylon VanMatre, and Landon VanMatre won the event and set a new conference record eclipsing the mark set by 3 of these boys (plus William LaCount, 2022 WLHS graduate) at last years championships.
