Paige Carter was second in the 200 freestyle (1:59.85) and Nicole Bellford took fifth (2:04.07) and she was second in the 100 butterfly (1:02.02). Steffi Durley was third in the 100 fly (1:02.55).

The 400 free relay of Bellford, Caitin Durley, Rottel and Carter took second (3:39.65), and Sammy Kozlowski took fifth in the 100 backstroke (1:06.06).

Other highlights, coach Jenny Moeller said, were senior Gina Lupo dropping five seconds in her 200 free, two seconds in her 100 back and splitting a season best in the 400 free relay.

Kozlowski was on fire leading off the medley relay, sprinting to eighth place in the 50 free, taking a second off her 100 back for a fifth-place finish and splitting a season best in the 400 free relay.

Sophie Carson dropped 12 seconds in her 500 freestyle.

"I'm impressed with how the girls swam today," Moeller said. "It's always fun to watch them in the water, but what also impressed me was how many teammates showed up to cheer and stayed for the entire meet just to support the team.

"To me, swimming has always been about more than what's happening in the water. I love that this team really cares about each other. That's what makes me proud to coach this program."
