Florida Tech ended the day on top winning the 200 free relay (1:22.53) joined by Aizenberg, Martino, Moll, and Barker.
“Finishing the year at home with a win was the perfect finish for the season and a perfect way to send off our seniors”, said head coach David Dent. “We had countless lifetime best and a couple of school records. This was one of the best meets I’ve ever witnessed here at Florida Tech.”
Florida Tech had two incredible performances by Savannah Brennan, on the women’s side, and Aizenberg both setting school records on the last meet of the 2020-21 season.
“Savannah and Daniel both improved upon their national rankings, so we’ll see where that puts them later this week when the NCAA posts the qualifying lists”.
