The Lady Flames, shown during an evening practice in Fort Myers, Fla., concluded their trip to Florida by competing in the Florida Gulf Coast quad meet on Saturday.

Liberty's Lindsey Romkes and Brye Ravettine posted season-best times, but it wasn't enough to get Liberty a victory at Saturday's quad meet in Fort Myers, Fla.

The meet, hosted by Florida Gulf Coast, capped off a week-long training trip for the Lady Flames. Liberty dropped decisions to Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association foes Florida Gulf Coast (57-235), Georgia Southern (76-214) and Radford (111-181).

The host Eagles defeated all three visiting teams.

Romkes swam her fastest 200 freestyle event of the season, taking first place with a time of 1:54.23, which is currently the fifth-fastest time in the conference. Ravettine also enjoyed her fastest time of the year in the 50 freestyle (24.13), and took second place in the 100 backstroke with a time of 1:00.34.

The Lady Flames drop to 3-5 on the year, and will next compete in a tri-meet against VMI and Mount St. Mary's, next Saturday, in Lexington, Va.
