TACOMA, Wash. -- The Lewis & Clark Pioneers marked the end of their season with four new all-time marks as the men's and women's teams competed at the Puget Sound Finale on Saturday.
Sam Duran set new school records in the 200 Individual Medley and 200 Backstroke while nearly setting a third with the second-best all-time mark in the 100 Freestyle. She clocked in at 2:09.66 during the 200 IM to move passed Lindsay Nixon's 2008-09 mark of 2:10.03 as she won the event. She later shaved 2:06.37 a few tenths-of-a-second off the record she set at the Logger Invitational last December in the 200 Backstroke. In leading off the 400 Freestyle relay, Duran finished her leg in 52.59 to nip the heels of Rachel Cazden's 52.25 school record from 2010-11.
The men's 200 Freestyle relay set a new school record after Andrew Butcher, August Bergh, Sam Raphael and Kyle Monteleone raced to a time of 1:27.27. Earlier, Monteleone finished third in the 200 Backstroke and added a new school record with a time of 1:57.48. Zac Oser had owned the previous record at 1:58.63 from last season. Monteleone, a freshman, had a previous career best in the race at 2:04.63.
The event marked the official last races for Lewis & Clark's seniors. Among them, Kevin Fox has a fifth-place finish in the 50 Freestyle, two-tenths off his season best. Lucia Brammer was fourth in the 200 Freestyle, while Alex Raphael took fifth in the 100 Breaststroke.
Kassie Kometani finished the 100 Butterfly in 59.53, her fastest all-time mark in the race. Khong shaved almost two seconds off her best time in the same race. Eleanor Gerrior claimed her best time ever in the 100 Freestyle at 54.59.
