Adding to a record-setting season

Sophomore Kelli Callahan is posed to add to an already record-setting season. During the final home dual of the season, Callahan set the Puget Sound women's record in the 200-IM by timing in at 2:07.25. Given a couple of weeks of proper rest and training, she could break her own record during the championships.

 

Conference honors

Kelli Callahan was named the NWC Women's Swimming Student-Athlete of the Week four times during the season, and Dylan Reimers earned the honor twice for men's swimming.

 

Top men's times

Dylan Reimers has the top times in the NWC this season for the 500-yard freestyle (4:40.47) and 1650-yard freestyle (16:15.11). Nick Mitchell has the third-best time in the 1,650-freestyle (16:41.87), and Ian Conery is also third-fastest in the 100-breastroke (59.39).
