Zackary Harris won the 10-and-under 200-meter freestyle in 2:32.17 and Michael Arias won the 11-12 race in 2:21.46.

Harris also won the 100-meter butterfly in 1:18.06 and 100-meter backstroke in 1:21.06 and led a Top 3 SOFLO sweep in both events.

Harris won the 400-meter freestyle in 5:22.83.

Marcus Vazquez won the 11-12 100-meter backstroke and led another Top 3 SOFLO sweep.
