That describes this year's boys' & girls' swim teams. Despite lower numbers this year due to the pandemic, the Rams approached this season with cautious optimism. After all, there was some high quality returnees ready to take a plunge into the pool.
When the ripples faded, both squads came out on top. With a shortened season and a cancellation of the Brandywine meet at the end of the season, the Rams and Bulldogs ended up sharing the conference title as both schools were undefeated in conference.
Who would have come out on top head to head? The world will never know.
