From this moment on, there was no way the Dragons could catch the Wyverns, and the boys finished them off in the 4 x 100 Freestyle Relay at the end. Truly, the KO boys’ team hit the pool at top speed in the first event, and they never looked back. It was a solid meet, and both squads go against their arch nemesis, Westminster School, on February 7th. Go Wyverns!
