At the Shen Invitational senior Nick Buff was part of the winning medley relay with a time very close to the current school record, a time that previously earned Shaker a state title in that event. Nick also won the 100 backstroke, which served as a turning point of the meet. Nick scored the second most points on the team and was a key player in a repeated fist place team ranking, outperforming several schools that are major contenders for the state title.
