The Knights were led by returning stars from last year’s championship team Madeline Singletary (48 points), Alexis Bender (37 points), Hannah Collerette (27 points), Gabriella Born (11 points), and Taylor Widmann (11 points). Singletary swept her events winning gold in both. Bender had some particularly eye opening swims.
