BROOKLYN HEIGHTS, N.Y. – The Stony Brook women’s swimming and diving team traveled to St. Francis Brooklyn and picked up three wins on Sunday afternoon. The Terriers ultimately got the dual meet victory, 133-107.

“I couldn’t be prouder of our women. When setting up the schedule for this year, this weekend was one in which I wanted to challenge them with back to back days to see how they’d respond. The women stepped up, supported each other and raced/dove well both days. It was a small step that’s going to make a big difference for our future. Can’t wait to watch what these ladies accomplish.”
