University of Toledo sophomore Brittany Teneyck (Lake) and freshman Alison Zsigray (Clay) are contributing points for the Rockets swimming and diving team.

In the Rockets win over the Oakland Grizzlies, 170½ -122½, Toledo had first-place finishers in 10 of the 16 events, including Tenecyk. On the diving boards, Teneyck finished second on both the one- and three-meter boards, scoring 246.23 in the one meter and tallying 244.20 in the three meter.
