Caitlin Cairns beat her career best in the 100 butterfly, clocking a 53.99 to move to ninth on the all-time list. The senior co-captain’s previous career-best was a 54.03, set at the Big Ten Championships.

JoJo Randby finished second in the 100 breaststroke prelims (1:00.87) and went on to finish third in the finals, with her second-fastest time of the season (1:00.56).

Caterina Bisiacchi swam a 4:50.51 in the 500 freestyle prelim and a 4:50.95 in the final.
