The visiting Tigers dropped to 5-2 overall, 4-1 in the ODAC, while the host Eagles improved to 6-2 overall, 4-1 in the ODAC.

“These guys have worked really hard this season,” said 11th-year head coach Betsy Leonard. “We are looking forward to ironing out the kinks before the ODAC Championships in two weeks and hope to go into the conference meet with a full, healthy roster. I am so proud of this team’s resilience, and I’m really excited for some fast times in Greensboro.”

Parsons won the 100 Fly in 1:02.19, while swimming on two relays that each finished second … the 200 Meter Medley Relay (1:58.09) and the 400 Meter Free Relay (3:55.49).
