Nybo opened the meet by swimming the anchor leg on Cal Lutheran's third place 800-yard freestyle relay team that finished with a time of 6:49.36. On day two, he set a new meet record in the 200-yard individual medley with a time of 1:49.43 and then placed third in the 100-yard butterfly with a time of 49.15 on day three. He then rounded out his stellar championships performance with a win in the 200-yard butterfly, clocking a time of 1:47.85. 

Pomona-Pitzer first-year Jason Lu was tabbed the 2019 SCIAC Newcomer of the Year after he helped the Sagehens register their second straight conference championship with 1125.50 points. Lu powered to the silver in the 200-yard individual medley with a time of 1:50.73 on day two of the SCIAC Championships, and then took gold in the 400-yard IM in a time of 3:56.53 on day three.
