Individually it was a strong day for the men's team. Anthony Monachino set the 2nd fastest and fifth fastest times in the 100 Meter Fly and 50 Freestyle. While the 200 Free Relay team, swam by Monachino, Chris Guard, McDonald Morris, and Drew Teter, set the second fastest time in men's history (1:46.49).
