MIAMI, FL, December 6. JUNIOR Taryn Cokayne and sophomore Sarah Perfetti put the finishing touches on a strong weekend of swimming and diving for the FIU swimming and diving team at the Princeton Invitational, per Florida International reports.

Both Cokayne and Perfetti set new school records in Sunday's finals of the 200-yard backstroke and the 200-yard breaststroke, respectively.
