A native of Marietta, Ga., Bunner picked up two event wins at the Cavalier Invite Feb. 14-15, including the 200 fly and the 100 back. His time of 48.09 in the 100 back ranks as the 10th-fastest mark on UVa’s all-time list and as the eighth-fastest time in the conference this year. His time of 1:46.58 in the 200 fly ranks 11th in the ACC this year.
Rauth, a native of Glenmoore, Pa., captured the 50 and 100 free at the Cavalier Invite. Her time of 49.48 in the 100 free is the seventh-fastest time on Virginia’s all-time list and is the fifth-best mark in the ACC this year, while her 50 free time of 22.96 is the 11th-fastest time.
