The team of Torres, Garrett Despres, Riley Brown and Turner Cook also won the 200 medley relay. DHC diver Kaitlyn Glynn totaled 283.40 points and defeated her lone opponent, Rose’s Lillian Ozimek, in the 1-meter diving competition.

Other DHC winners included Abigail Burns, Meredith Bullard, Brooke Despres and Ruth McGee (200 free relay), and the team of Jacob Bell, Garrett Despres, Connor Dennison and Torres (400 free relay).
