The Inter-Ac's individual championships were held Tuesday at Episcopal Academy and performers in grades below 11 were dominant for the Quakers.

Here are the PC swimmers who finished in the Top 6 in their events. These girls were able to stand proudly on blocks as their accomplishments were announced to the spectators.
