Mroz had a strong sophomore season, breaking both the one and three-meter female diving records for Canisius. She scored 259.80 and 280.55 respectively in the events, while placing second in both dives at the 2017 MAAC Swimming and Diving Championship.
Wright also broke both Canisius diving records on the men’s side this season, reaching 371.85 in the one meter and 398.45 in the three-meter event. The junior won both events at the 2017 MAAC Championships and was named MAAC Male Diver of the Year.
