Next up was the 200 Freestyle where Sanchez had earned a berth in the final heat. The sophomore finished with 14th place points and helped Hollins to begin to pull away from seventh and further distance themselves from their rivals from Sweet Briar. DeVarona posted Hollins best finish of the meet to this point when the first-year brought home eighth place points in the 100 Breaststroke. DeVarona missed a sixth place result by less than .25 of a second. The final individual points for Hollins were claimed by Davis when she touched 14th in the 100 Backstroke.

The final event of day two was the 800 Freestyle Relay. Hollins posted a solid sixth place finish with Dani Raymond and Emily Miehlke teaming with Sanchez and DeVarona to register a final time of 8:41.91, less than seven seconds behind their cross-town rivals from Roanoke College.
