Freese also has the second-fastest time in the 100-yard back and was also part of three record-breaking relay teams during her four years at Bucknell.

She was named to three All-Patriot League teams and swept the 50 and 100 free events at the Patriot League Championship meets in 2003, as well as winning gold in three relay events. In total, she won three straight Patriot League crowns in the 50 free and won the 100 free during her junior and senior campaigns.
