Bartholomew had two individual wins against No. 14 Indiana and Penn State, sweeping the backstroke races. The Holland, Mich., native tallied two NCAA B marks and notched the top times in the conference in both the 100 back (53.68) and the 200 back (1:55.33).

McGinnis led the Virginia Tech men to a first-place finish in the Hokie Fall Invitational including a win over No. 21 South Carolina. The Raleigh, N.C., native swept the backstroke events with NCAA B standard times and competed on five relay teams that posted first place finishes with NCAA B marks.
