For more than 10 years, Sunil Surprenant and Miles Brown have been swimming together, at first during the summertime break at neighborhood pools. Surprenant remembered his first swim meet against Brown when they were six and eight years old, respectively.

"My first race ever was against him. I lost by like 20 seconds," Surprenant said.

Since that early beginning, Surprenant and Brown now both compete in swim meets during the summer for Stonegate Swim Club and during the winter for Hubert Blake High School. 

Surprenant, Brown, Noah Ferguson and Aaron Stanton of the Blake Bengals came in first place to win the 200-yard freestyle relay. In addition to that victory, Brown won first place in the 50-yard freestyle, and Stanton came in first in the 100-yard freestyle and 100-yard backstroke. Surprenant also competed as a part of the 400-yard freestyle relay team that placed first a full seven seconds ahead of the Magruder team.

Riley Powell, Bridget O'Hara and Madelyn Ceely have been together at Mill Creek Towne in the summer since they were six years old, and now as sophomores each play key roles in the Lady Colonels first place position this season. Sammie Perry fills the fourth spot on the relay team that finished more than three seconds ahead of the Blake relay team at the meet.

Powell also finished first in the 200-yard individual medley and the 100-yard breaststroke, while O'Hara placed first in the 100-yard freestyle and 100-yard backstroke.
