Law opened the meet with a first-place finish in the B Final of the 400 IM, good for ninth overall, when she clocked in with a time 4:23.32. The rookie erased her previous school record of 4:24.76, which she set at the 2013 Patriot Invitational in November.

In the 100-yard breaststroke, senior Remy Neville took home seventh place with a career-best time of 1:04.50. 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.
Reigning champion Richmond sits in first place with 434.5 points followed by Fordham in second (318), Massachusetts in third (289), George Mason in fourth (281), Duquesne in fifth (261.5), Rhode Island in sixth (216) and La Salle in seventh (198). Trailing GW is St. Bonaventure in ninth place (168) and Saint Louis in 10th (101.5).
