Luke also scored 214.20 points off the 3-meter board for a second place finish.
"We swam pretty well today and had some good events," said head coach Jeanne Fleck. "I was really happy with Brittany Buna and her season best 1000 time, Dani winning the 50 free again was great and the divers went 1-2-3 in the 1-meter."
Dani Yoho (Sugar Land, Texas) continues to dominate the 50-yard freestyle event and earned another first place finish. Four other first place finishes were earned by the Dogs for five total as a team and nine second place finishes.
Bulldog Brittany Buna (Victoria, BC) clocked a 10:34.64 time in the 1000-yard freestyle race. This was her season best time in the distance event and she placed second.

"Overall we did alright, not great but not terrible," said Fleck. "We are now getting tuned up for next week and I saw some good things out of the girls today. We are still young and still learning and now looking forward to the Invitational next week."
