Sarah Sundius held strong to her times in both the 100 Freestyle, finishing in 2nd place, and the 100 Backstroke, placing 7th with a time of 1:10.51. The backstroke finish also qualifies Sundius in her 6th event for the State Championship meet.

On the boys' side, Matthew Sundius finished 3rd in the 100 Freestyle, shaving off a small amount for a new personal best time of 1:01.60. Sundius also grabbed 10th in the 50 Freestyle. Ben Jaques swam into a 5th place finish in the 100 Backstroke and a 6th place in the 50 Freestyle.
