The Barbs overcame a long bus ride and shorter warmup to defeat McHenry, 116-54, in a dual meet on Wednesday.
The co-op had four individual winners. Marc Dubrick won the 200-yard individual medley and the 100 breaststroke, both in career-best times. Daniel Hein took first in the 50 freestyle and 100 free, also career bests, while Ryan Schultz won the 100 backstroke. Jacob Bjork took first in the 200 free, also in a career-best time.

Dubrick, Schultz, Hein and Ryan Lindsey combined to win the 200 medley relay while Austin Bockman, Holden Mackey, Dubrick and Hein teamed for a win in the 200 free relay.
