FORT MYERS, Fla. – The Miami Hurricanes cruised to another pair of wins Monday afternoon, picking up victories over FGCU and Colorado State at the Lee County Aquatics Center.

With a sweep of both decisions in the tri-meet, the Hurricanes improved to 7-1 on the year. Competing without their diving contingent, the Hurricanes topped the host Eagles, 192-102, and beat a talented Colorado State team, 166-128.

Miami was in control from the outset, with the Hurricanes’ top entry in the 200-yard medley relay picking up a win with a time of 1:40.71. Emma Shuppert, Emma Sundstrand, Giulia Carvalho and Jacey Hinton opened the meet in impressive fashion.

From there, Adrianna Cera won the 1,000-yard freestyle (9:58.50) and Miami took the top two spots in the 200-yard freestyle thanks to strong outings from Talia Bates (1:47.62) and Savannah Barr (1:48.30).

Leah Treglia (54.48) and Shuppert (54.61) also secured the top-two spots in the 100-yard backstroke, while Sundstrand (1:03.00) won the 100-yard breaststroke and Cera earned her second individual victory, this one in the 200-yard butterfly (2:00.25). Freshman Amanda Witkus was third (2:01.90).

Jane Fitzgerald kept the momentum rolling for Miami with a win in the 50-yard freestyle (23.47) while Bates won one of her signature events, the 100-yard freestyle, in a time of 49.73.

Cera finished second in the 500-yard freestyle (4:52.89), Bates did the same in the 100-yard butterfly (54.46) and Sundstrand in the 200-yard IM (2:03.40) to add key points in the back half of the meet.

The Hurricanes put the finishing touches on the impressive outing with the top finish in the 200-yard freestyle relay, as Bates, Fitzgerald, Hinton and Carvalho finished in a time of 1:32.12 – more than two seconds faster than second-place FGCU.
