Wayne Country Day junior Robert Glass posted a pair of top-four individual times and helped the 200 free relay place fourth overall during an independent schools meet contested at the Goldsboro Family Y on Monday evening.

Glass took fourth in the 50-yard freestyle in 27.68 seconds and captured fourth in the 100 free with a time of 1:04.38. He was joined on the relay team by seventh-grader Zan Pittman, John Thompson and James Thompson. The quartet placed fourth in 2:07.49.
