Sarah Currie finished second in the 50-meter breaststroke and third in the 50-meter backstroke.

Sheryl Currie finished first in the 25-meter freestyle and third in the 25-meter backstroke.

Other first place finishers were Callum Hargrave (50-meter breaststroke), Katie Kroot (100-meter individual medley) and Raelia VanDusen (50-meter butterfly).

Jakob Brager finished first in the 100-meter freestyle, second in the 100 and 200-meter backstroke and third in the 400-meter freestyle.

The 11 and under boys relay team of Bryce Melnick, Nicholas Bennett, Tyson Kreiger and Ben Roberts won all three of their races. Alex Roberts finished second in both the 800 and 1,500-meter freestyle.

Nate Hees finished second in the 200-meter butterfly and 400-meter individual medley, as well as third in the 200-meter individual medley, 100-meter backstroke and 200-meter butterfly. Joanna Redenbach finished second in the 50-meter for both butterfly and backstroke.
