It was the second straight season that this meet came down to the final leg of the 200 freestyle relay. Last year, Coast Guard came-from-behind to win on the last leg to win the relay and the meet.
On Saturday, Coast Guard led by five points entering the final relay and Wheaton had its top relay match up. The Bears needed to either tie or win to win the meet.
Coast Guard is back in action on Saturday when the Bears host WPI at noon.
