Among the Gators’ top individual efforts were those of senior Maddie Wright, who won the 200-yard freestyle and finished second in the 100-yard freestyle.

Junior Jordan Herrera was third in the 200-yard individual medley and fifth in the 500-yard freestyle. Junior Kelly Scott was fifth in the 50-yard freestyle and fourth in the 100-yard freestyle. Sophomore Gracie Munk was fourth in the 100-yard butterfly and second in the 100-yard backstroke. Senior Olivia Paliscak was fifth in the 100-yard butterfly and eighth in the 50-yard freestyle.

The XCP divers had a solid day, led by senior Maddy Sewell’s fourth-place finish.
