The following swimmers had an outstanding meet with all of their individual swims resulting in best times:

After each meet, the coaching staff picks two swimmers, one girl and one boy, as the “Big Dogs" of the meet. Big Dogs are not only selected on their performance in the meet, but the coaches also take into consideration the swimmer’s practice attendance, work ethic, team spirit and sportsmanship. For this meet, Avelina McMurtry, age 9, and Kevin Sullivan, age 12, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
