"Another great team effort today," said head coach David Sheets. "We viewed this meet as a great benchmark for the program against two solid teams. We swam very well today."
"We are not where we want to be, but the ladies continue to work hard to keep the program on path for who we want to become at the end of the season."
The Dukes return to action on Saturday, Nov. 9 as they host Youngstown State at noon at Towers Pool.
