COMMERCE, Calif. (Feb. 16, 2017) – The Caltech women's swim & dive team set another record on Day Two of the SCIAC Championships, shaving almost two full seconds off its own regular season 200 Free Relay time.
The record marks the third in as many relays that have been contested to this point at the conference championship, while several individuals enjoyed high points of the season as well. Sophomore Brittany Percin (Lake Tahoe, Calif. / Stanford Online) qualified for the consolation finals heat in the 500 Free and held her positioning to place 11th overall in a season-best 5:12.72. Freshman Angelina Pan (Toronto, Canada / Havergal Coll.) narrowly missed out on the evening session as she trimmed .12 in the 50 Free, an event in which freshman Tzarina Shippee (San Diego, Calif. / La Jolla) also shaved .23 to record a personal best.
The Friday meet schedule looks much fuller for the Beavers, with the 400 IM, 100 Fly, 200 Free, 100 Breast, 100 Back and 400 Medley Relays set to be contested.
