Miller also won the 100-yard breaststroke (1:00.81) and the 200-yard IM (2:01.05) while Fisher won the 50-yard freestyle (22.22) and 100-yard freestyle (49.230). Coert was second in the 50 free (22.50) and Miller was second (49.41) in the 100 free.

Additionally, Andrew Strauch won the 200-yard butterfly (2:02.93) and finished second in the 100-yard butterfly (54.96) while divers Dylan Glumac-Berberich and Matthew McMahon took the top spots in the three-meter dive, recording scores of 265.40 and 193.70, respectively.

"Whitewater is a tough, well-coached team," said Head Coach Annie Ryder. "We are looking forward to seeing them again at conference. The men haven't beaten Whitewater in several years. We had several swimmers out with the flu today so it was a really exciting win. On the men's side it came down to the last relay so the energy in the pool was really exciting. It was a great way to close out the dual meet season."

The divers will compete at the Minnesota Challenge Feb. 3-4 before the team travels to Brown Deer, Wis. for the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) Championships Feb. 16-18.
