The Spartans, led by Nick Dillon, went 1-2-3 in the 100 butterfly, and the Generals got no closer.

The race of the day came in the 400 free relay, as the Monument team of Harry Albert, Dean, Sam Cybulski and Dillon just edged out Pittsfield's team of Hayden Plouffe, Conor Mooney, Connor Hayford and Boyd. Monument's time was 3:49.08, and Pittsfield's was 3:49.20.
