The Wolves’ 400 free relay team of Sundin, Swanson, George and Coffman won in 4:23. A second 400 free relay team of Eislynn Flood, Aleah Chen, Claire Cronin and Francesca Bargis finished third in the event in 4:49. Both were district-qualifying swims.

The Wolves completed a sweep of tops spots in the relays, with the 200 free relay team of Bernsten, Flood, Riley Hough and Morgan Cariou placing first in 2:12.

The Wolves swept the 100 backstroke event, with Bargis in first with a district qualifying time of 1:14; Swanson was second in 1:19 and George was third in a personal best finish of 1:20.

Sundin took second overall in the 50 freestyle with a time of 29.03 and George third in 30.39.
