Additionally, junior Capria DeVenuto finished with a season-best time in the 200-yard butterfly, earning her a 20th place finish.

In the platform competitions, Miami’s men’s and women’s divers were able to secure first and second place finishes as well. On the women’s side, senior Heather Bounds finished first while freshman Brittany Viola finished second.
