Allison Clark (Fr., Keizer, Ore.) won two events and a set a school record in her first attempt of the season at the 100-yard breaststroke, leading five Pacific event winners in their Northwest Conference swimming dual with Puget Sound Saturday at the Forest Grove Aquatic Center.
Clark, the Boxers' only multiple event winner, swam a strong race in the 100-yeard breaststroke, notching a one-second victory with her time of 1:12.88. The time eclipses the former record of 1:13.87 set by Marya Hall in 2004. Earlier in the meet, Clark was an easy winner in the 400-yard individual medley, swimming a time of 4:52.69.
Kristin Favillo (So., Caldwell, Idaho) and Nicole Koch (Fr., Longmont, Colo.) each won one event for the Pacific women. Favillo captured the 50-yard freestyle in a time of 26.86 seconds, while Koch won the 100-yard butterfly in a time of 1:04.22.
Brandan Mantei (Jr., Canby, Ore.) was the only winner for the Pacific men against a strong and experienced Puget Sound squad, capturing the 100-yard freestyle in a season best of 49.95 seconds.
The Loggers used numbers and experience to capture team victories on both the men's and women's sides. The Logger men won by a score of 139-41, while the women tallied a 122.5-74.5 victory. With the wins, the Puget Sound teams improve to 4-1 overall and 4-0 in NWC duals. Pacific fell to 0-8 overall and 0-6 in NWC duals.
Puget Sound's men won 10 of 11 events. Alexander Jeremic led the way, earning victories in the 200-yard freestyle (1:47.99) and the 100-yard butterfly (53.27). Jeremic also swam the third leg on the Loggers' winning 400-yard medley relay (1:41.08).
Ava Williams was the lone multiple event winner for the Puget Sound women, winning the 200-yard freestyle (2:01.86) and the 100-yard freestyle (56.58). Williams also swam the leadoff leg on the winning 200-yard freestyle relay (1:46.11).
Pacific returns to the pool in two weeks, hosting Willamette on Fri., Jan. 29, in their final NWC dual of the season. Puget Sound competes again next Saturday, hosting Lewis & Clark.
