The 16 year girls finished equal 10th and as a result had a choice of a coin toss or a swim off to determine the final school for the final. Both teams agreed to a swim off. Unfortunately, the girls lost by 0.17 sec. The 13 year girls enjoyed an unexpected success. After not qualifying for the final, the team were invited to swim in the Girls Open 200 Metre Freestyle Invitational Relay and swam brilliantly to take the silver medal 2.18.83. The girls' excitement continued when Olympian Craig Stevens presented their medals
All other swimmers can be pleased with their efforts with most swimming personal bests in their events.
