Melanie Nocher finished third in her heat in the 100m backstroke.
However it wasn't enough to clinch a place in the semi-finals for the Co Down athlete.
Meanwhile 17-year-old Sycerika McMahon was last in her heat in the 100m breaststroke.
She finished just under half a second under her personal best.
