In its last meet before the winter hiatus, the Brown and White defeated Canisius, 163-77. Against the Griffs, the Bonnies picked up a total of 11 first-place finishes. Senior Natalya Ghostlaw earned three individual first-place finishes, including the 1000-yard freestyle (10:54.37), the 200-yard freestyle (1:58.58) and the 500-yard freestyle (5:18.33).
Valentine, Lanae Petty and Jeannette Dietrich all had individual first-place finishes. Valentine swam a 1:01.56 in the 100-yard backstroke while Dietrich clocked a 24.94 in the 50-yard freestyle. Petty was the sole participant in the 100-yard butterfly to break 1:00.00, swimming a 59.87.
