The White Buffalos claimed the top spot in every race but the 200-yard freestyle relay, led by a pair of victories by Dustin Henderson, Brady Tucker and Ian Goodwin.
Henderson took the gold in a pair of freestyle events, the 200 and the 100. He won the 100 free with a time of 55.61 seconds and the 200 with a 2:04.35.
Tucker won the 200 individual medley, touching the wall with a time of 2:18.10, and he also won the 100 backstroke with a time of 1:04.25.
Goodwin won events at the same distance, 100 yards, but in different strokes. He took home top honors in the 100 breaststroke, with teammate Jordan Gemelas finishing second, in 1:05.21. Gemelas finished in 1:08.57.
Goodwin's win in the 100 butterfly was a big one, as he was the only swimmer to finish in less than a minute. He won the race with a time of 55.78.
In the 50 freestyle, Gemelas won with a frantic sprint of 25.53.
The Madras "A" relay team won the 200 medley relay (1:52.94) and the 400 freestyle relay (4:29.71).
On the girls' side, Sisters held the numbers advantage and filled out their side of the events, while the Buffs couldn't put three in the pool for an event the entire meet.
That made the effort by the Buffs all the more impressive, with seven gold medals to Sisters' four.
Madras' Aurora Gerhardt, Sophie Gemelas and Liz Armitage each won two events, and the Madras "A" relay team won the 400 freestyle relay.
Gerhardt raced to wins in the 50 freestyle (27.11) and the 100 backstroke (1:06.94), while Gemelas paced herself to a win in the 500 freestyle (5:43.47) and blasted the field in the 200 individual medley, winning by more than 10 seconds, with a time of 2:20.61.
Armitage captured gold in the 200 freestyle (2:09.86) and the 100 butterfly (1:10.16).
