Natalie Arky led the squad off in 25.67, and was followed by Brandi Vu (27.17), Kylie Cronin (23.90), and Josiane Valette (22.54).

In the men’s events, Denver’s Sid Farber and Cameron Auchinachie were members of both the winning 200 medley relay and 800 free relay. Auchinachie led the 200 medley relay off in a speedy 21.33, with Cy Jager posting a 23.49 breast split behind him. Adriel Sanes split 21.05 on fly, and Farber anchored in 19.00, getting his hand on the wall for a time of 1:24.87, which was slightly off their season best of 1:24.63.
