Complete Meet Results
Florida Atlantic University swimming and diving hosted Denver on Saturday afternoon as divers Ryan McIntire and Lauren Beyer came away with wins and Miles Miller saw two second-place finishes to highlight the day. The men's 200-yard freestyle relay team also came away with a victory as did the men's and women's 400-yard medley relays and Colin Kozak in the 100-yard IM.
"We had some great competition against University of Denver, who swam really well after their training camp down south," said Head Swim and Dive Coach Lara Preacco. "Our 'FAU Fun Invite' was also a great way to get our swimmers and divers back into competition mode after our mid-season meet. The divers surpassed themselves again. Owls up to Ryan, Miles and Lauren for a job well done"
