Leona Jennings, Mt. Rainier, 50 free and 100 back: Jennings edged the record in the 50 free by .07 seconds, and with the 3A meet after the 4A, she beat the new record time Ballard’s Annemarie Thayer set just hours earlier in the 100 back.

Lindsey Marchand, Peninsula, 100 fly and 100 breast: Marchand improved on the record setting time she set in the 100 fly preliminaries, and then she edged the record in the 100 breast by two-hundredths of a second.
