TCU's 400-yard freestyle relay team made up of Lohrberg, Roemer, Mikayla Winkler and Robertson placed first at 3:33.78.

In the final event, the men set out a 400 free relay team consisting of all freshmen that secured the best time of 3:07.21. Thach, Drewes, Sanchez and Jack McLaughlin made up the fastest squad.
