The division 2 boys freestyle relay (Philip Schwichtenberg, Logan Sparkes, Anton Stoeckly and Myles Wheeler) claimed bronze.

The girls division 6 medley relay placed bronze with Leanne Bodnar, Taylor Lees, Jaydin Lees, and Justine Stoeckly. Girls Division 5 Freestyle relay consisting of Henrietta McInroy, Jaydin Lees, Taylor Lees, and Justine Stoeckly took bronze as well.
