Junior Ali Taubert (Bloomington, Ill./University) competed in the 500-yard freestyle, finishing with a time of 5:34.22 which earned her four points. Trimpe matched Taubert's grab of four points as she 13th in the 100-yard breaststroke. 

The 200-yard freestyle relay saw the quartet of Cripe, Allie Berry (Brighton, Mich./Brighton), Lightner, and Lauren Knop (Geneva, Ill./Geneva) go off for 30 points as they hit the wall at 1:43.03. 

On the men's side, the 200-medley relay team of Matt King (Clinton, Ill./Clinton), Frederick Jenny (New Albany, Ohio/New Albany), Gonzalo Castro Diaz (Mexico City, Mexico), and Tate Wegehaupt (Tigard, Ore./Tigard) garnered 30 points with their 1:38.53 finish. 

Castro Diaz picked up a couple points with a 2:01,94, 15th-place finish in the 200-yard IM.

Junior Kyle Braun (McHenry, Ill./West) stopped the clock at 50.63 in the 100-yard freestyle for five points. King also scored five in the 100-yard backstroke.
