Cicero-North Syracuse finished with 94 points in the Class A team event, but saw Billy Werksman win the diving competition. Werksman picked up 471.05 points, beating Nottingham's Kalonji Cole (401.05 points) by exactly 70 points. Liverpool's Dan Roche was fourth with 393.65 points, with Dan Whaley in 12th place.

Werksman also helped Tyler Smith, Tom McAndrew and Jamie Fisher get sixth place in the 200 medley relay in 1:50.21 and, by himself, got 12th place in the 100 backstroke. Smith, Fisher, Ben Mozo and Ricky Blackburn were seventh (1:37.01) in the 200 freestyle relay.

All this led to Sunday's state qualifier, where Liverpool again took the runner-up spot, earning 263 points as West Genesee (332 points) maintained possession of the George Falwell Cup.

Roche improved his diving score to 414.55 points and qualified for the state meet, as Werksman, with 487.70 points, was second to Mexico's Nick Rodriguez (511.55 points). Perfitt improved his 100 backstroke time to 55.83 seconds and took fourth place, adding a sixth in the 100 freestyle (49.81 seconds) ahead of McLeod in eighth.

Donovan hit 1:50 flat in the 200 freestyle, earning sixth place as he also got seventh (5:13.38) in the 500 freestyle. Clarke again took sixth in the 100 breaststroke, finishing in 1:04.33 as Burns was eighth in 1:05.43.
