The Beavers finished competition at the Arena Invitational with an eighth place finish in the 400 freestyle relay. The group of Holmstrom, Ashley Kerekanich, Trail and Dole, swam a season best time of 3:25.69.
Oregon State finished with 435 total points for the invitational which was good for seventh overall out of 19 collegiate teams competing.
