All in all, Buffalo had six top five finishes on the day, led by the stars of Day One, Brittney Kuras and Jessica Powers.
The two went one-two in the 200 free after each winning events on Thursday. Kuras touched in a pool-record 1:47.24, while Powers came in exactly a second later. Spencer Rodriguez dropped 14 full seconds off her previous best time to win the 400 IM in 4:17.24, adding a second individual title on the day for UB. Both winners notched 'B' qualifying times for NCAA championships eligibility in their wins.
UB's relay entries saw another victory and another pool record in the 800 freestyle relay, which finished in 7:17.35, and a second place finish in the 200 medley relay, which touched in 1:40.67. Kuras, Powers, and Rodriguez were all part of the first group, and Kuras also jumped in for the 200 medley, as well.
In other individual results, Taylor Steffl threw down a season-best 54.51 in the 100 butterfly to take fourth in that race.
Saturday is the last day of the meet, and the Bulls will field teams in the remaining events and try to move up a little bit more in the meet standings. Go Bulls!
