Long said he had at least four other swimmers post their all-time bests on Saturday. Josh King and Logan McBee were two of the others as they both set a personal record in the 200 individual medley. McBee, who won the event, had a time of 2:19.52; while King, who was fourth, finished in a time of 2:44.00.
"We had a lot of guys swim really well, but I think there is still room for them to move down even further,'' Long said. "Josh Kind had a good day and Lucas Miller, even though he had a lot of goggle problems, had some really good times.''
Miller, who was also a part of the Vikings two relay victories, also won the 100 butterfly and 100 breast stroke events. Tristian Wolfe was another Danville swimmer to finish the day with four victories as he was on the two winning relay teams and he also won the 100 backstroke and 100 freestyle events.
In addition to the being the home finale for Danville, it was also senior day for three Vikings swimmers — Jordan Ledesma, Shannon and Ali Shilo.
"This group of seniors have been fun,'' Long said. "Max will swim whatever I want, he is just a fun, good-nature kid. Jordan has been a diver for three years and he is always willing to learn. And for Ali, swimming has done a lot of him. He has really improved dramatically over the years.''
Shannon admits that Saturday was a special day for him and the other seniors and it had the right ending.
"You always want to win that final meet at home,'' he said. "It was pretty important for us.''
The next scheduled meet for Danville is next Saturday at the Big 12 Conference Championship.
