This finish is higher than the team's fifth place finish at this meet just one year ago and comes on the end of a month where the team posted a 10-2 dual meet record and a first place finish at the FUMA January Invitational. "I am happy with where the team is at as we head into championship season," says Coach Campbell. "We have qualified a total of 15 for the VISAA state meet and we have several that have either qualified for Sectionals, NCSA's or Senior Champs.  I am looking forward to seeing how they do in the coming weeks as they start into their taper!"

Fork Union Swimming & Diving will next compete at the VISAA State Swimming & Diving Championships which is to be held 17-18 February at the Christiansburg Aquatic Center in Christiansburg, VA.
