Both the men, 120-139 to Saint Leo, and women, 136-116 to Saint Leo and 130-126 to Lynn, fell on tough times as they dropped the meets in heartbreaking fashion.

However, the day started off on a high note as the team looked to honor its nine senior members as they took their lanes for the final time at home. Edward Ilako, Paulina Bjorkbacka, Samantha Conger, Yagoh Kubagawa, Trista Phelps, Neta Saar (Haifa, ISRAEL), Thomas Steenberg, Mary Ida Spradlin and Evelyn Stein were recognized for both their athletic and academic achievements they have earned over their time at Florida Tech.  The third and fourth events of the day saw Birgitt O'Connor finish second; while Emanuele Rossi and Kubagawa, second and third, placed in the top three for the men.
