Princeton, N.J. – Highlighted by four individual medals, both the men's and women's swimming and diving teams took fourth overall at the Princeton Invitational this past weekend. The Bears squared off against some tough competition including Florida, Princeton, Washington State and Rutgers.

Borgolini also took the silver in the 200-yard breaststroke with a time of 2:17.78, almost a full three seconds ahead of the third-place finisher.
The men also boast a second-place finish as Tommy Glenn captured the medal in the 200 butterfly. Glenn finished with a time of 1:51.86.
The Brown men also garnered two third-place finishes as Ryan Kikuchi took the bronze in the 200 backstroke (1:50.03) andConnor Carlucci garnered similar honors in the 200 breast (2:04.05). Carlucci, a tri-captain, reset his own school record in the 100 Breaststroke (55.72) placing second in the event.
The Freshman class jumped into the action, placing an additional nine times on the All-Time Top 25 List. Emma Lamothe (50 Free -17th, 100 Butterfly- 22nd), Paige Gilley (50 free- 25th, 100 Butterfly- 24th), Glenn (100 Butterfly -25th, 200 Butterfly- 7th), Leigh Holmes (100 Butterfly -23rd), Seth Akers-Campbell (1650 - 24th), and Danny Fujinaka (1650- 25th) all added their names to the list in their first college invitational.
