In a potentially record-setting performance spanning 57 events, 100+ Rhode Island-area Masters swimmers of all ages and abilities topped the 60-team field with determination, camaraderie and flair by dominating the relay events and scoring over 8400 total points, nearly 3000 more than host team and defending champion Cambridge Masters. Longtime SwimRI Member and Rhode Island Aquatic Hall of Fame Inductee Tom Manfredi led the way by scoring 215 points en route to capturing the men's individual high-point trophy.
