Lillian Oyen-Ustad had a great final day to lead the way for the Owls. In a competitively packed field in the 100 freestyle the junior was able to claim a third place finish in a time of 56.11. Her third place performance was able to place 16 points on the board for the Owls. Their were plenty of other Bryn Mawr athletes in action in the same event. Ryan Griffin earned a 21st place finish, posting a time of 1:01.49. Samantha Forestier was right behind in 26th place for the Owls with a time of 1:02.87, a new season best for the sophomore.

Bryn Mawr also got a fantastic result from Varuna Jasodanand in the 200 yard breaststroke. The Owls sophomore took fourth place in the event in a time of 2:33.31, nearly four seconds faster than her third place performance last year and just four tenths of a second off of her school record. The competitive field was filled with 18 other competitors including Hannah Soisson. Soisson was able to lock in a 10th place finish for the Owls in a time of 2:41.54 and earning seven points towards the team score.
