The Golden Griffins finished in the top spot in front of Wheaton (86.125) and Boston University (67.500).
"I couldn't be more proud of my team", said Canisius head coach Jill Wright. "They captured our 15th ECAC
championship and continued the great tradition of Canisius Synchro! I'm
excited to see what they can accomplish at nationals."
In the victory, Wright claimed her sixth ECAC Championship of her coaching career. As a student-athlete for the Griffs, the coach was a part of four championship teams, bringing her career total to 10 ECAC Championships.
