Junior Janica Lee won the B Final of the 100 breast and took home ninth overall in 1:04.54 and sophomore Lauren Steagall touched the wall in 1:05.71, finishing fifth in the B Final and 13th overall.
Senior Lindsay Moore finished fourth in the 100-yard backstroke B Final and took home 12th place overall with a time of 51.08 seconds. In the final event of the night, the 400-yard medley relay team of Moore, Neville, Zebley and Sydney Saunders finished in eighth with a time of 3:49.03.
