Lifetime, All-Time Marks Set In Successful Meet

Butler swimmers set 11 lifetime bests during competition last weekend, compiling the team's most successful performance of the season. Also, 10 more top-10 school history marks were set.

In the first day of IUPUI's House of Champions meet, Elizabeth Miller, Serena Daley and Lauren Scotti each etched their names on Butler's all-time leaderboards. Miller's time of 5:17.16 in the 500 free was good for seventh on BU's all-time list. Later that same day, Daley's 50 free mark (25.18) was good for fifth. Scotti's time in the same event (25.28) was Butler's eighth-best mark in school history.

In the first day of the meet, the following Butler swimmers set lifetime bests: Tonda-Rae Lee (500 free), Rosalie Fidanze (200 IM), Stephanie Shoults (200 IM) and Annie Dvorchak (200 IM).

The next day at IUPUI's meet, seven new times by Butler swimmers made the all-time chart. BU's 200 medley relay (Kaitie Ring, Amanda Wagner, Megan Boebinger, Daley) swam 1:50.80 to make BU's all-time top 5. Other marks in the top 10 were: Caitlin Weichelt (200 free, 1:57.62, 7th), Miller (400 IM, 4:52.78, 7th), Milly Sauber (400 IM, 4:51.74, 6th), Wagner (100 breast, 1:07.67, 4th), Fidanze (100 breast, 1:09.88, 8th), Scotti (100 back, 1:02.01, 5th).

The second day of the meet was also highlighted by lifetime-best performances by Rachel Soberman (100 breast, 1:12.77) and Lee (200 free, 2:13.63).

Lee, who was tabbed the team's swimmer of the meet, added a lifetime best mark in the 100 free (2:24.98). Hayden Engstrom's time of 2:24.98 was a lifetime best effort as well.
