Albrecht, Kirsten, Lauren and Louie Marin combine for fourth place in a co-ed, 200-yard freestyle relay.

Alex Ottomo, 11, proved she is the up-and-coming South Shore swimmer to beat. She finished second in two events and third in three events.

Among the boys, 8-year-olds Christopher Haven and Westin Terpening teamed up for a combine six top-three finishes. The boys took three medals apiece.
