At the annual Kearns Relay Meet, Murray competed against seven 6A schools including Copper Hills, Cyprus, Taylorsville, Hunter, Granger, and West Jordan. This is a wildly unique meet comprised entirely of traditional and non-traditional relays including T-shirt exchanges, fins, two-person chains, and crescendo distances.

The co-ed 400 free relay is the crowning event of the meet. 16 freestylers from each school thrash 25 yards with lights out and glowsticks on. On a relay team comprised largely of seniors, the Spartans seized the win from Kearns with splits averaging less than 12 seconds. What a blast!
