Jarrell and Quintanilla posted back-to-back second place finishes, Jarrell in the 50-yard free (28.54) before Quintanilla followed with a time of 2:35.68 in the 200-yard individual medley.

After a first-place time for Franzak in the 100-yard butterfly (1:09.58), Phillips and King followed with a 1-2 showing in the 100-yard free. Phillips came in at 1:03.92 followed by King at 1:05.56. Quintanilla picked up her final second place finish in the 100-yard backstroke at 1:12.37.
