OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - The San Diego State swimming and diving team broke two school records on the final day of the Mountain West Conference Championships in Oklahoma City, Okla., on Saturday. The Aztecs finished the four-day meet in ninth place with 176 points, 30 points behind eighth-place Air Force (206), as junior Kimberlee Frith and the 400 freestyle relay team each set school records.
Frith's time of 51.77 seconds in the 100 freestyle preliminaries broke the school record previously set in the 2001-02 season by Heather DeFelice (52.10). She later swam a time of 52.24 in the finals to finish in 15th place.
Frith later teamed with seniors Samantha Peters and Emily Schmied, and junior Stella Karoly to break the 400 free relay record with a time of 3:29.88. The old record was 3:30.43, set by Schmied, Karoly, Hannah Ryan and Caitlin Friedhoff during the 2003-04 season.
