Stoller was pleased with his pair of Top Eight finishes.
“This was a fantastic day,” he said. “I made both of my goals. I could not be any happier.”
One of the Northridge youngsters was freshman Spencer Lehman who took seventh in the 200 freestyle (1:41.59) and fifth in the 500 free (4:34.72).
“It was pretty cool to come down here and place like that,” he said. “I wanted a Top Eight in the 500 and a Top 16 in the 200.
“This was a great experience. I got to talk to a lot of the older guys. They gave me some good advice and a lot of encouragement. I can’t wait for next year. I’m really looking forward to the next couple of years. My goals are to swim faster and place higher.”
As one of the youngsters he felt right at home with the rest of the team.
“Everybody was great,” Lehman said. “We had a lot of guys here cheering us on. I am proud to be a part of this team.”

“For Lehman to come in here and have two Top Eight finishes is great,”Keller said. “Koch, Cripe and Burbrink also had good meets.
“Now it is going to be all about doing the hard work and investing the time in the sport. If we do those things we could have a pretty special group here in a couple of years.”
