Canter took home individual wins in the 200 IM (2:09.74) and 100 butterfly (57.69) and teamed up with Tino Deemer, Garrett Fleming and Austin Shaffer-Doan to win the 200 medley relay in 1:51.69.

“Drew Canter competed in some different races tonight and swam well, as did Ian Meterko and Austin Shaffer-Doan, who got back into the 25s in the 50 free,” said Gressler. “I’ve been pleased with what Drew has been doing recently, and I think he’ll see that work pay off later.”
