The record-breaking pace continued in day 2 of the Husky Invitational for the Broncos. Another five team records were set in the second day of the three day meet as the Broncos remained in sixth place, and right on the heels of WAC-rival Hawai’i.
The Broncos didn’t miss a beat as they began the individual events with a record-breaking performance in the 400 IM. Chelsea Lopus finished in 15th with a time of 4:36.63, but it was Emily Irvin in the bonus finals that broke another record with a time of 4:32.62, placing her in 17th.
Another record was broken in the very next event as Amber Boucher continued to have an outstanding meet in the100 fly. The new team record came in preliminaries when she finished with a time of 56.85. Boucher went on to finish 12th in finals with teammates Sammy Sanchez-O'Dell and Kirdy Franco finishing behind her in 22nd and 24th, respectively.
As if one record wasn’t enough, Boucher returned to the pool in the next event to set yet another record. Boucher set the team record in the 200 free as she swam a 1:53.71 in the preliminaries, later finishing 15th in finals. North also achieved a new personal best in the 200 free with a time 1:53.86 in the preliminaries, finishing 21st in finals.
The records kept rolling in as Irvin broke her second record of the day in the 100 breast. She recorded a time of 1:04.88, beating her own record by one one-hundredth of a second. Her time placed her in 13th overall, followed by Erin Stotts in 19th, Lauren Keele in 20th and Tara Hahto in 23rd.
Denise Green was the top-finisher for the Broncos in the 100 back as she recorded a time of 58.80 to finish in 14th. Morgan McLain was the next to touch, bringing home a 15th place finish, and was followed by Franco in 23rd.
In the relays, the Broncos earned a seventh-place finish in the 200 medley relay, but set their fifth team record of the day in the 800 free relay. The quartet of North, Lopus, Green and Boucher finished in sixth with the new team record of 7:44.22.
The Broncos will look to continue their record-setting pace in the third and final day of the meet on Saturday. The last events will be the 1650 free, 200 back, 100 free, 200 breast, 200 fly and will conclude with the 400 free relay. Follow the Broncos live at broncosports.com.
