The Brown and White's highest finish this season was second out of five teams at the Justin Jennings Memorial Invite at Colgate University on Oct. 7.

ABOUT CANISIUS
Canisius is 3-1, having won its last three dual meets after dropping the season opener to Marist back on Oct. 13. The Golden Griffs recently defeated Colgate University, by a score of 187.5-93.5. Senior Travis Wright swept the 1-meter and 3-meter diving events against Colgate, while the 200-freestyle and 400-medley relays were also victorious.

CONSISTENCY IS KEY
The relay teams have been a consistent part to the Bonnies lineup so far this season. The 200-freestyle and 400-freestyle relay teams are repeatedly in the top four or five places at each meet. The 200-freestyle relay team finished first with a time of 1:24.90 at UConn on Oct. 20.

Individual winners for the Bonnies this season include Guido Balderrama, Tjaard Krusch and Robert Marshall. Balderrama, a sophomore, won the 200-butterfly at Colgate University ringing in a time of 1:55.39. At UConn, Krusch grabbed first in the 200-IM swimming to a time of 1:59.11 and Marshall was the winner of the 50-freestyle with a time of 21.60.
