Travers Smith recorded the only other individual victory for Valpo on the day. His time of 4:55.22 was 11 seconds in front of his nearest opponent. Smith also finished second in the 200 free on the afternoon, touching the wall in 1:47.87.

Valpo's 200 free relay of Smith, Bob Pedersen, Josh Stamper, and David Kesler took home a win in the final event of the day, finishing in a time of 1:30.32.

Kesler earned an individual second place finish in the 100 free, in addition to his relay victory. He finished with a time of 51.36 seconds. Pedersen also earned an individual runner-up finish, doing so in the 50 free. His time of 22.94 seconds was just .60 seconds off of the pace.
