The Hawaii women’s 200 free relay team of Bryndis Hansen, Franziska Weidner, Kasey Schmidt, and Taylor Thorsen combined to win the event with a 1:30.84, holding of UCSB which finished in 1:31.13. Weidner led the field with a 22.04. Hawaii was about half a second off their own meet record, which was set in 2013.

The Pacific men’s 200 free relay team went over a second slower to win than they went about a week ago when they achieved the NCAA ‘A’ cut in this event. They posted a 1:18.41 compared to their 1:17.29 that qualified them for the NCAAs. The fastest split on the team came from Miles Mackenzie at 19.27, but all 4 splits were under 20.

Phoebe Hines led the way in the 500 free, going her fastest time every by half a second, breaking her own meet record that she set in prelims, and going 8 seconds faster than she went at this meet last year. Hines went 4:40.85, coming in under her 4:40.9 from the Art Adamson Invite in Novemeber. Moreover, that time should make her safe for being invited to the NCAAs, as it’s a second faster than it took to be invited last year. It should also be mentioned that Hines is a Sophomore, and she broke the Hawaii team record by 7 seconds.

Logan Hotchkiss of UCSB won the men’s 500 with a time of 4:15.98, just off the meet and pool record time of 4:15.91 that he set in prelims. He was off his own UCSB team record 0f 4:15.0 from November. That time comes in well under the invited time to the NCAAs from last year, leaving Hotchkiss in a good place going forward.

Hawaii’s Franziska Weidner was also slightly off her season best of 1:55.68 in the 200 IM, winning the event with a 1:55.92 to break the meet and pool records for the 2nd time today. Her 1:55.68 will surely get her an invite to the NCAAs since it’s 2 seconds faster than the invited time last year, and is only half a second off the ‘A’ cut.
