The No. 8 UVa men were victorious over No. 24 Penn State, 198-155, but were barely beaten by No. 7 Indiana, 177-176.

Virginia’s top 400 free relay of senior Tom Barrett, sophomore Charlie Rommel, Camp and junior Jonathan Buerger defeated Indiana’s top relay in a time of 3:00.85, but the Hoosiers’ relay was able to touch before UVa’s second squad to propel IU to victory.
On the women’s side, senior Lauren Perdue captured two individual wins in the 50 free (22.55) and the 200 free (1:46.45) and was a part of the 400 free relay that won in a time of 3:21.38.
Junior Rachel Naurath and sophomore Ellen Williamson, both part of the winning 400 free relay along with Perdue and junior Emily Lloyd, touched second in the 1000 free (9:50.19) and 100 fly (54.62), respectively.
