Men's Freestyle Relay Starts 2014-15 With Pool Record

Claremont, Calif. - The Pomona-Pitzer Men's Swimming and Diving team set a new Haldeman Pool record in its first event of the season at the Pomona-Pitzer Relays on Saturday afternoon. 

The 400 freestyle relay team of senior Andrew Savage, freshman Mark Hallman, sophomore Danny Villars and senior Hugh Berryman finished first in the event with a 3:11.95, eclipsing the facility record set a year ago.

Hallman had a full day at Haldeman Pool, as he played in the Men's Water Polo team's 9-7 win over Redlands in the morning and then joined the Swimming and Diving team in the afternoon to set a pool record. Villars also contributed to another first place finish for the Sagehens, joining brothers Daniel To (sophomore) and Samuel To (freshman) in winning the 3x100 backstroke relay. 

The Pomona-Pitzer Women's 400 Freestyle relay team almost made it a sweep of the event, but was edged by Cal Baptist of the NAIA, 3:38.48 to 3:39.16. Junior Johanna Rayl, freshman Manon Audebert, sophomore Cayla Nishizaki and senior Vicky Gyorffy swam in that event.

Cal Baptist was the team winner combining men and women, while the Pomona-Pitzer Men finished first overall in their events 116-111 over CMS (with Cal Baptist in third). 

Pomona-Pitzer will be back in action next weekend for the Redlands Pentathlon.
