CHICAGO – The Case Western Reserve University women's swimmers placed second of 10 teams at the Midwest Invitational on Friday and Saturday, February 21-22 at Myers-McLoraine Pool.

The Spartans turned in a pair of top-three finishes as junior Abby Glenn (Novi, Mich./Novi) finished third in the 1,650-yard freestyle with a time of 18:30.48. The 200 medley relay team of Glenn, sophomore Bailey Burk (Bowling Green, Ohio/Bowling Green Senior), senior Hannah Altman-Kurosaki (New York, N.Y./Fiorello H.
