The Tigers scored just 71 points, but head coach Ryan Hamen was pleased with his team's effort.

"We did not score well, but the boys swam well," he said. "This is going to help us in true team, our depth. The boys are working very hard at their techniques and after every swim are talking about what they have to work on. They are looking forward to what they will need to do for our meet versus Shakopee this week and the section true team meet this coming Saturday."
