In the boys meet, Taconic Hills fell to Wahconah, 86-70.

“Neil Howard won both his individual events including the 50 free and the 100 fly. His 50 free time broke the school record by .03 seconds. Travis Blank had held the record since 2012. Josh Sena and Chris Russell both had 1st place finishes in the 500 free and the 200 I.M.
