The Canyon girls improved to 7-0 overall and 3-0 in league.

The Golden Valley girls (2-4, 0-3) were not without their winning times.

Michelle Duraj scored a pair of victories, edging out Pino by .14 in the 100 breaststroke and winning the 50 freestyle (24.83).

Harris took care of things for the Canyon boys (5-2, 2-1) with wins in the 500 freestyle (4:55.53), 100 backstroke (55.83). He was also a member of the winning 200-medley relay team with Connor Rainen, Matthew Howard and Jacob Mijares (1:49.99) and in the 200-freestyle relay with Nick Tran, Timothy Peak and Mijares (1:39.94).
