BUFFALO, N.Y. –The St. Bonaventure University women's swimming and diving team defeated Canisius, 158-142, in a dual meet Sunday at Erie Community College.
The Bonnies eared first-place finishes in nine of the 16 events, led by Devon McFadden, who claimed victories in the 100-backstroke, 200-backstroke and 100-butterfly, and she was also part of the 400-medley relay team that took first place.
Alyssa Levac grabbed two wins on the day, finishing first in the 100-breastroke and the 200-IM.
"We needed to win events and our top end carried the load," said head coach Brian Thomas. "All in all, it was a good day for us and we can now shift our focus toward Akron."
St. Bonaventure will hit the pool again at the Zippy Invitational at Akron from Dec. 2-4.
