"The team swam really well after a tough few weeks of practice and had some great races," said Head Coach Annie Ryder. "Our focus for dual meets continues to be on racing tough rather than times. They learn the process of racing and then we switch gears to time towards the end of the season. Our divers did extremely well and continue to make improvements. I'm very proud of their effort, their intensity and the way they support their team."

Next up for the Blugolds is a dual with UW-Stevens Point on Oct. 20 at 1 p.m.
