“We had some of our swimmers out due to illness and family trips,” said Cape coach Bill Geppert. “It was an excellent opportunity for others on our team to step in and get their chance. Great moments are born from great opportunity. We were excited at their times. It pushes everyone to be at their best.
Dover has some quality swimmers. They have done a nice job building their program.”
