16_SWIM_ErhartMarcia1

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Catawba posted three school records, taking down one of the oldest on the books, on the final day of 2019 Bluegrass Mountain Conference Championships on Saturday night at the Mecklenburg Aquatic Center. Both Catawba teams finished fifth among the eight teams at the Championships.

All three records on Saturday came on the women’s side. Oryan Malul posted a new standard in the 200 fly with a time of 2:12.06. The 400 free relay team of Carolin Albers, Claire Featherstone, Emily Najar and Carolin Bek lowered the mark to a time of 3:32.94.

The most notable record came earlier in the 1650 free. Marcia-Mariel Erhart eclipsed the 17-year-old record that was held by Melissa Schiffel and set in 2002. Erhart bettered the mark by nearly eight seconds with a swim of 17:21.85. The time placed her fourth in the event which was the best finish by a Catawba swimmer at the Championships.

Top swims on Saturday for the men came from Federico Borrego Higareda, Alan Hudgens and Joao Miranda. Higareda posted the fifth best 200 breast time with a 2:02.41. That came in the final where he finished fifth. Hudgens and Miranda placed eighth and ninth in the men’s 1650 free with times just three one-hundredths of a second apart. Hudgens had a 15:57.02 and Miranda a 15:57.05. Those were the second and third fastest on record.

Some Catawba swimmers will head to the Royal Open on Friday and Saturday at Queens University in Charlotte, N.C. to try and lower times to qualify for the NCAA II Championships.
