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.
