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.
