On Wednesday morning the Division IV meet got off to a slow start with a 15 minute delay but that did not prevent the Pope John Paul Jaguars girls from coming out smoking hot.

Christ Episcopal’s Freshman Mary Louise Lemieux swam to two second place finishes in the 200 Free and the 500 Free.

The PJP boys claimed state runner up honors for the third year in a row. Freshman Davis Legnon won the 200 IM and placed second in the 100 Free. Senior Captain Eddie Landry finished in fourth in the 100 Free and the 100 Breast. The Jaguar boys 400 Free relay placed second.
