Three More Records Fall on Final Day of Metropolitan Championships

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (2/24/19) - The Kean University women's swimming team dropped three more records on the final day of the Metropolitan Championships at Rutgers University.

"Overall I could not have asked for a better weekend of competition for our women", said Head Coach Chris Swenson.

The Cougars finished the competition 14th with 176 points, which is 102 more than last year's total. Kean capped off the final day with new records in the 1650 free, the 50 fly and the 200 breast events.

Kristina Sullivan added another record under her belt by setting a new record in the 1650 free event with a time of 19:20.42, which bested the old record of 20.16.58 by Joon McGavin on Feb. 16th, 1986.

The 50 fly would be the next record to fall as Molly Lasko posted a time of 28.39, which breaks the old record of 29.06 set by Shaina Rudolph on Nov. 3rd, 2000.

Tori Hayes would bring the long weekend to a close with a new time of 2:45.56 in the 200 breast event. Hayes breaks the old record of 2:46.06 set by Maddalena Mustillo on Dec. 4th, 1997.
