“I thought our teams competed well at both ends of the pool,” head coach Jerry Cummiskey said. “On the boards, our divers continued to impress, winning all four events with multiple personal-best scores. On the swimming end, we  competed well for where we are in our training . A majority of our swims today were season bests and we are heading in the right direction. We still have more work to do but we are happy  with the progress our teams are making and their ability to meet every challenge that we put in front of them.”

Binghamton returns home to host Colgate on Friday at 5 p.m.
