Oakbrook Prep coach Jessi Sullivan said the strong performances were a product of the team’s mindset .

“We didn’t go in with the mindset of just winning,” she said. “We just went in to do our best. Almost every single person who swam for us today swam their best time and dropped tons of time. I’m still kind of surprised and at a loss for words, actually. The girls win in particular came out of the blue.”

Sullivan said the team’s battle with Spartanburg Day was expected.

“Every time we’ve competed with them this year it’s been a toss-up,” she said. “We’d get a first, and they’d get a first. They’d win a meet, and we’d win a meet. It’s been a true toss-up, for both the boys and the girls. But the girls set the goal for themselves to win the state championship. You talk about determination…they’ve been working so hard. Both sides of the team put it all out there today. Every single person made a difference, from our middle schoolers to our seniors.”
