Another grade eight athlete, Alyssa Spataro, battled mostly grade elevens and twelves, beating over half the field to finish 13th in the province in the 50m breaststroke.

The meet ended strongly for the RSS team with the 200m freestyle girls relay team improving by five seconds from their prelims to finish 13th in the province.
