Harm placed first overall in the 100 butterfly and second in the 100 breaststroke. He clocked 48.32 in the first and 54.92 in the second. His effort of 100 flies was close to the NCAA B cut standard of 47.43. Harm also swam the butterfly leg with the winning team in the Navy 200 IM relay. His time of 20.88 was the field’s fastest by three-quarters of a second.

Harrington, who won the distinction for the second week in a row, won the 200 butterfly and 500 freestyle events. His time of 1: 59.38 in the 200 butterfly earned him the win by over six seconds and was also just outside the NCAA B Cup standard of 1: 59.23. Harrington then won the 500 freestyle by three seconds with a time of 4: 59.86. She then swam the first run for the winning team in the Navy 200m freestyle relay with the fastest time of any leading swimmer in the race (23.94).

Montau, like Harrington, a recipient of multiple awards, matched Moore’s effort by convincingly winning the three-meter event and narrowly winning on the one-meter board. She scored 289.73 points to win the three-meter competition by almost 30 points and totaled 274.88 points to finish second in the one-meter by three-point event. Both of his scores were qualifying totals for the NCAA zone competition.
