Stamp finished second in both the 200 yard Backstroke and the 400 yard Individual Relay. McFarlane placed second in the 200 yard Freestyle and Zaepfel was second in the 100 yard Freestyle.

On Wednesday night, each team lost at the tri-meet held at Monroe Community College with Mercyhurst Northeast. This dropped the women's dual meet record to 1-2 and the men's team is now 0-3. Genesee is idle until January 14th when it will travel to the Cobleskill Invitational.
