Hayley Heath took to the pool in the 200 individual medley, setting the school record with 2:48.38. Her time was 40 seconds faster than the previous best by a Marlin as she became the first to swim the event in under-three minutes.

The 200 yard freestyle team of Heath, Diana Jones, Allie Ghazaleh, and Morgan Lucas earned all 18 points for the Marlins, finishing ninth in the event with a time of 2:13.92.
