The duo helped lead the Cavaliers to a sweep of Wisconsin and Virginia Tech Jan. 25-26.
Daniec won three individual events, including the 500 free (4:25.70), 1,650 free (15:08.65) and 400 IM (3:55.16), and was a part of the 800 free relay that touched first in 6:34.84. The Mission Viejo, Calif., native’s mile time was an NCAA B standard and ranks 16th in the nation this year.
