The USD "A" squad that swam in the 450 backstroke to a first place finish (Aileen Fedrick, Brittany Cramer, Kristen Yoon) finished in a time of 4:52.95. The USD "A" squad that swam in the 450 butterfly relay (Joy Miller, Shala VanGerpen, Meghan Peter) finished in a time of 4:49.47 for a first place finish.
