Dalrymple, Relay Team Set School Records On Final Day Of SCIACs

Commerce, Calif. - Freshman Kyle Dalrymple broke the school record in the 200-yard breaststroke by .15 and the 400-yard freestyle relay team set a new mark in the meet's last event for the Pomona-Pitzer Men's Swimming and Diving team on Sunday at the SCIAC Championships.

Pomona-Pitzer finished in second place overall at the SCIAC Championships with 706.5 points,  ahead of Redlands in third with 622. CMS was the runaway winner with 1229 points overall.

Dalrymple swam a 2:06.56 to earn an NCAA "B" (provisional) cut while finishing sixth overall at the event, and breaking a school record which had held since 1996, when Scott Swanson set it. Also earning NCAA "B" cuts were freshman Tommy Turner (pictured) in the 1650-yard freestyle, who came in third with a 16:14.61, just over three seconds shy of the school record, and freshman Daniel To, who was second in the 200-yard backstroke with a 1:51.47.

The 400-yard freestyle relay team of junior Chris Garnatz, freshman Timmy Hardman, junior Kevin Byrne and junior Hugh Berryman finished out the SCIAC Championships with a 3:06.70, defeating the old mark of 3:07.83 set two years ago (Berryman also swam on that relay).

Pomona-Pitzer will await word of possible NCAA qualifications over the next several weeks, prior to the NCAA Division III Championships in Indianapolis.
