CSUB roundup: Women's swim team sets 2 school records


SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- CSU Bakersfield opened the WAC Women's Swimming Championships by breaking a pair of school records.

The 200 medley relay of Jeanette Dove, Jodi Hanson, Nicolette Goncalves and Lauren Kaufman lowered the school mark to 1:43.42 as the team finished seventh. The old record of 1:44.86 was set during the 2010-11 season.

"To break a record in the first event was a great way to start the meet," said CSUB director of swimming Chris Hansen. "We didn't just break it, we broke by over a second."

The 800 free relay of Michaela Paige, Ali Gillespie , Kelsey Lange and Delise Batiza broke their own school mark by almost 7 seconds (7:27.58) to finish sixth. CSUB sits in eighth (50) in the team race. Northern Arizona (118) leads the team competition.
