The 85th annual Westchester County Swimming and Diving Championships went off without a hitch from late July through early August, as 39 teams competed in the diving portion at Sprain Ridge Pool and the swimming events at Playland Pool. Lake Isle raced to first place for the sixth year in a row, but Rye Golf Club and Coveleigh Club impressed with respective fourth- and fifth-place finishes.

At the Conference Championships, which ran August 6-12 at Westchester Country Club, the host team came in first. Rye Golf placed fourth, while Coveleigh and Shenorock finished ninth and 10th respectively.
