Wales was second to Muhammad in the 100-meter fly and was fifth in the 100-meter IM, while Pierce was fifth in the 100-meter fly.

Also on the women's side, Stanford sophomore Shelly Ripple won the 200-meter fly, was fourth in the 100-meter IM, fifth in the 200-meter IM, sixth in the 100-meter fly and seventh in the 50-meter fly.
