First, Courtney Watts continued her domination of the Girls 10 and Under age group, winning the 400 meter Freestyle with a time of 4:49.46; the margin of victory was nearly 18 seconds. Courtney also won the 50 meter backstroke and anchored the Girls 400 meter Freestyle Relay to victory.

Then, in the evening finals session, the 11-12 boys A team of Liam Redman, Johnny Bradshaw, Justin Singletary, and Cole Greenberg won the 400 meter Freestyle relay with a record time of 3:57.25. The same four boys won the 200 meter Freestyle relay on Wednesday night. The VSI A team also went under the previous record of 3:57.73, but was out touched by PVS in a race that went neck and neck from the opening dive.

The PVS Boys 13 – 14 400 meter Freestyle Relay A team of Jack Moore, Henry Radzikowski, Larry Sapp, and Trace Wall also won their event with a time of 3:43.40, out touching the New England Zone A team in another race that was closely contested from the beginning.

Other victories for the PVS team on Friday include the 10 and under Boys 400 meter Freestyle. Michael Mullen remained perfect for the meet, winning his fourth event with a time of 4:56.08. John Paul Gonsalves took second for PVS in that event at 4:56.92.
