Senior captain Danielle Carty took first place in the 100 backstroke with a time of 55.82 seconds.

The 800-freestyle relay team of Stoughton, sophomore Emily Hovren, freshman Heather Arseth, and senior Daniela Cubelic finished second in 7:31.92 minutes.

Senior Veronica Rydze took first place in the diving well in the 1 meter after posting a score of 284.93 points, and sophomore Abby Grilli finished third with 276.75. Rydze also took second place in the 3 meter with a score of 327.90 points.
