"For the first time all season I think our flyers and IMers were a little off," Marshall head coach Leonard Kraus said. "Overall I thought we swam faster tonight which was nice. We got good medley relay performance and our sprinting really came along."
Freshman Haley Holmquist led the Herd in the ultra-competitive diving competition as she finished 16th in the in the three-meter dive with a score of 197.15.
Marshall will finish competition in the Miami Invitational tomorrow.
"I think we got better looking today," Kraus said. "I still think we can swim even faster tomorrow."
