Teammate Sydney Torok took top spot in the 400m freestyle and individual medley, adding a third in the 800m freestyle.

In the 15-and-over girls division, Alanna See picked up a gold medal in the 800m freestyle, adding silver in the 200m fly.

Ben Holwerda (13-year-old boys) earned the final Chilliwack gold in the 100m fly.

Bronze medals went to Eduard Stanciu (13-year-old boys) in the 200m backstroke and Jimmy Stewart (15-and-over boys) in the 200m backstroke.
