LEWISBURG, Pa. – The Bucknell women's swimming & diving team fell to James Madison, 155-88, on Sunday at Kinney Natatorium.

Before the meet, their last at home in 2017-18, the Bison celebrated seniors Leah Bloodgood, Caroline Edelman, Grace Ford, Tally Ford, Julianna Foss, Sage Maggi and Maddi Marcheskie

It was a freshman who ultimately stole in the show, with Maggie Wyngowski racing to two of Bucknell's four first-place finishes. Wyngowski won the 200 breaststroke (2:20.23) and 400 IM (4:26.66); her time in the 200 breaststroke would have been slotted ninth in the Bison annals if she didn't already own the third-fastest time (2:17.74).

Mia Haggerty (500 freestyle) and the 400 medley relay team of Emma Hadley, Bloodgood, Lindsay Smalec and Abigail Rosenberg also touched the wall first.

In addition, Alaina Schumann posted a score of 232.13 in the 3-meter dive, the ninth best in school history.

Senior captains Edelman and Foss had strong performances in their final home meet. Foss took second in the 200 butterfly, posting a time of 2:05.74 that would have been slotted eighth in school history if she wasn't already the record holder (2:00.26). Edelman finished third in the 100 freestyle and also anchored the third-place 200 freestyle relay. 

Hadley (200 backstroke) and Rosenburg (50 freestyle) placed second in their respective events while Smalec raced to a pair of third-place finishes in the 200 freestyle and 200 butterfly. Bloodgood, a member of the first-place 400 medley relay team, also took third in the 200 breaststroke.  

With the loss, the Bison fell to 5-3 (3-2 Patriot League) on the season. They next close out their dual meet schedule by traveling to Lehigh on Saturday, Jan. 20.
