Lauren Sundin placed second in the 50 free (28.85) and trimmed her personal best in the 100 butterfly by a second to 1:18, good for third place.

Coffman and Sundin joined Francesca Bargis and Natalie George to place third in the 400 freestyle with a district meet-qualifying time of 4:24.

Sydney Swanson took second place overall in the 100-yard breaststroke, in 1:25.02.
