Senior All-American Birte Steven set new records for Gibb Pool in the 100- and 200-yard breaststroke events, with times of 1 minute, 2.56 seconds and 2:14.38 that were good enough for first place. Sophomore Ausra Pacebutaite set a record in the 100 backstroke with her 56.94 mark, also good enough for first.

Freshman Sandy Hong won the 1,000 and 500 freestyles, bringing her career event win total to 12. Junior Kristin Huston touched the wall first in the 50 freestyle; while sophomores Christina Kinney, Monika Miroslaw and Ashleigh Thomas all brought event wins home for the Beavers in the 100 butterfly, 200 butterfly, and 200 backstroke. The three sophomores tacked another onto their career win totals, bringing them to 8, 5, and 2, respectively.
