PROVO, Utah – The BYU women’s swim team finished its final day of the BYU Invitational, defeating all three opponents. 

"It was a great two-day meet for our women," BYU head coach John Brooks said. "I'm really proud of our women because they are undefeated. They haven't had a strong season like this in a while and they have come together, worked hard and it's paying off. We had great races today; they did an amazing job."

The Cougars came away victorious by scoring 314-49 against Dixie State, 224-148 against Liberty and 282-90 against UC Davis.

A squad of Gustafson, Tiare Coker, Kali Brown and Katie Smith closed out the meet with a first-place touch of 1:34.94 in the 200-yard freestyle relay.
