Hover finished third in with a time of 5:24.87 while Bender and Harper finished with two seconds of each other in seventh (5:42.32) and eighth (5:44.32) respectively. 
The 200-yard freestyle relay squad of Hover, Anna Endsley, Davis and Leon finished the race in 1:48.31 in fifth in the morning, and the same group improved upon that time by over six seconds in the evening to finish in fifth place again. The 400-yard medley relay team of Leon, Roberts, Davis and Hover set a new school record with a third-place finishing time of 4:08.65.
