Kibler opened the four-day Hall of Fame Swimming Invitational with a leadoff leg of 1:30.57 on the winning 800-yard freestyle relay. Texas finished the relay with the seventh-fastest time (6:07.34) in history and best outside of the NCAA Championships. He returned to win the 500-yard freestyle (4:09.18), recording the second-fastest time nationally behind his own top time. Kibler swam the leadoff leg on the winning 200-yard freestyle relay and placed second in the 100-yard freestyle (41.92) with the second-fastest time of the season.

Bray won three individual titles and two relay crowns during the four-day Texas Hall of Fame Swimming Invitational. She swam the butterfly leg on the winning 200-yard medley relay, which posted an NCAA ‘A’ cut time of 1:35.78. Bray also swam the butterfly leg on the winning 400-yard medley relay that set a school record with a time of 3:26.86. It also established the fastest time in the country this season. Bray won the 50-yard freestyle, and her 22.13 in the prelims ranks No. 8 on UT’s top performers list. She won the 100-yard butterfly in a school-record time of 50.37, breaking a 12-year-old mark in the event. Bray closed the meet with a win in the 200-yard butterfly and posted the fastest time in the nation this year (1:52.85), a mark that ranks No. 2 on UT’s top performers list.
