BOSTON -- Freshman swimmer Allyce Brand (Highland Park, Illinois) posted a sixth place finish in the 100-yard breaststroke highlighting the action for the Binghamton University women's swimming team on the third day of competition at the America East Championships on Friday at Boston University's Aquatic Center.

"We are real pleased with level of competiveness and tenacity that our women are showing," said head swim coach Sean Clark. "This was a great leap ahead of where we were at last year."

Brand was the Bearcats lone finalist on Saturday, touching in a personal best time of 1:08.04. She was one of seven BU swimmers to return for the evening sessions. In addition, in four of the five swimming events, Bearcats occupied the 17th spot, one off the cut for the consolation finals.

Sophomore Aleksandra Grubic (Split, Croatia) took 11th in the 200-yard freestyle in 1:57.10 Sophomore Heather Jennings (Ridge, N.Y.) and junior co-captain Bridget Dormer (Northport, N.Y.) were consolation finalists in the 400-yard individual medley, finishing 13th and 16th, respectively.

In the 100-yard butterfly, BU also had a pair of point-scorers, as freshmen Lindsay Wright (Johnson City, N.Y.) and Rita Brodfuehrer (Syracuse, N.Y.) posted 15th and 16th place finishes.

Sophomore Kelly Harris (Farmingdale, N.Y.) rounded out BU's pointscorers coming in 16th in the 100-yard backstroke in 1:03.50

The UMBC women (455) remain ahead of Boston University (426) and New Hampshire (414). Vermont (299) is in fourth, followed by Maine (287), while Stony Brook (199) and Binghamton (171) round out the rankings.

"We are very pleased with our performance thus far," said Clark. "But there is still work to be done."

Day four of the four-day event continues on Sunday with two sessions of events. The first session of the day gets underway at 10 a.m., followed by the day’s second session at 5:30 p.m.
