The school’s split the meet, with the Providence Men taking down the Black Bears 177-111, while the Maine women came out on top with a score of 161.5-133.5.

Jerod Magazine helped kick off the dominating performance for the Friars Men as he took first place in the 800-meter freestyle (8:48.71), beating the closest competitor by over 20 seconds. Magazine went on to win the 400-meter freestyle with a time of 4:14.95.
