QUOTABLE

"Day three had some great swims, with our first conference champion in Dale Bruce," head coach James Graves said. "Lifetime best swims and two more team records, along with some great support of each other made this day special for King swimming. The team race on the women's side is very close heading into day four, so we will need to bring our A game on Sunday to hold our position. One more day to go finish a great season, and I couldn't be happier with our effort. Go Tornado!"
