Stone swept the sprints by winning the 50 free (23.10) earlier in the day, beating Keaton Bloved of Lakeridge to the wall by .16 hundredths.

Century won the team title with 168 points, picking up first-place points in six of the 11 events. David Douglas was the top East County team, placing sixth with 75 points.

• On the boys side, David Douglas senior Lucky Le pulled down the top East County finish by placing third in the 50 free (21.85), touching out a pair of swimmers at the wall by .02 hundredths.

The Scots finished sixth in the team standings with 79 points. Sunset won the team title with 179.
