School Relay Records Fall On First Day Of SCIAC Championships

Commerce, Calif. - The Pomona-Pitzer Men's Swimming and Diving team broke school records in both relays on the first day of the SCIAC Championships on Friday.

The Sagehens finished second in the 200-yard freestyle relay with a time of 1:24.39, as junior Eirik Hansen, freshmen Timmy Hardman and Daniel To and junior Hugh Berryman broke the old mark of 1:24.82 set in 2012 (Berryman also swam on that relay).

Pomona-Pitzer closed out the meet with a third-place finish in the 400-yard medley relay, as To (backstroke), Kyle Dalrymple (breaststroke), Will Thorson (butterfly) and Berryman (freestyle) finished in 3:24.83, breaking the old record from 2010 by almost five full seconds (3:29.73).

Berryman had a strong individual race in the 50-yard freestyle as well, finishing with a 21.11 to come in sixth. Freshman Tommy Turner almost added an individual record in the 500-yard freestyle as he came in sixth with a 4:40.90, just over a second (1.06) behind the school mark.

Pomona-Pitzer is third overall after 12 events, trailing CMS and Redlands. The second day of the SCIAC Championships will begin tomorrow at 9 a.m. with prelims, with the finals taking place at 5 p.m.
