Maeve Wilber won the 200 individual medley in 2:22.95 and the 100 backstroke in 1:03.82. But a key win by the Spartans' 200 relay squad put the home team in position to win, according to coach Jill Svirida.

The Spartans' relay squad of Lauren Richardson, Hannah Miller, Rowan Rice and Wilber won the race in 1.50.93, less than three-tenths of a second ahead of the Taconic Hills squad, who finished in 1:51.2.
