The Pitt-Bradford men's team finished ninth of 10 teams with 111.5 points. The Panthers women's team finished 12th out of 12 teams.

"Noah and Devyn had some nice swims to get into finals today and were able to improve tonight as well," Head Coach Doug Alban said. "This was a challenging weekend against some very tough competition. We performed fairly well and can take a lot away from this seem to put towards our peak training over the break. We will now set our sights on the AMCC Championships in February."

For the second-straight day, Noah Frederick competed in the finals of a breaststroke event, this time, the 200-breast.
