Then Parker went to the 200 individual medley, where she gained first place in 2:22 flat. Later in the meet, Parker swam the 100 breaststroke in a top time of 1:11.72.

As for Sidorakis, she rolled to first place in the 100 freestyle before going to the 100 backstroke and earning another victory in 1:06.68. Right at the end, Sidorakis, joined by Martin, Connor and Elena Margrey, gave the Bees a win in the 400 freestyle relay in 4:10.21.

B’ville got two more individual titles from Amanda Johnson and Emma Atkinson, as Johnson beat the field in the 200 freestyle in 2:14.90 before Atkinson swam the 100 butterfly in 1:07.47.
