BOSTON, MASS. –  The Army West Point women’s swimming and diving team claimed first place on Sunday at the Terrier Invite hosted by Boston University.

The Black Knights finished the three-day event with a 1,000.5 points, besting their total of 852 points at the event from a year ago.

“I’m very pleased with our performance this weekend,” said head coach Mickey Wender. “We had a tremendous team effort. Our goal was to win the meet and we were able to do that.”

“I think it sets us up in a good position to battle Navy in 13 days, and for the rest of the season. We had a lot of people step up today and it was a great win from top to bottom.”

Josephine Marsh topped the podium in the 200 backstroke with a mark of 1:59.78, nearly four seconds faster than the next finisher.

Additionally, Monica Sowinski finished second in the 100 freestyle with a time of 51.07.
