Sophomores Mitchell Friedemann (Allenton, Wis.) and Giles Smith (Baltimore, Md.) won the 100 back and 100 fly, respectively.

In addition, the men’s 400 medley relay team was at it again, carrying on its undefeated streak.

On the women’s side, senior Alyssa Anderson (Granite Bay, Calif.) earned a win in the 200 free, 500 free and the 200 fly, junior Ellyn Baumgardner (Fairfax, Va.) won the 100 breast, sophomore Margo Geer (Milford Center, Ohio) won the 100 free and junior Chelsey Salli (Vancouver, B.C.) in the 200 breast.
