The Glenbrook South High School boys swim team celebrated their state championship with a splash Friday night.

The team -- and their trophy -- jumped into the pool after being recognized during halftime at South's game vs. Maine South.

Among the highlights of South's swimmers' strong season was Max Iida's state record-shattering time in the 200 IM, beating the second-place finisher by about 7 seconds.

The record he broke?

His brother, Sam's, set at the state meet in 2017.
