The E.D. White Catholic boys set a new D3 Record in the 200 medley relay to kick off the 2019 LHSAA Division 3 Championships. Collin Klingman (back- 25.16), Jacques Rathle (breast- 25.89), Dawson Jeansonne (fly- 23.99), and Brendan Martin (free- 22.29) combined to set the mark in 1:37.33. That lowered their own former record by over 2 seconds. The Calvary Baptist boys also set new D3 Records in the 200 free relay (1:29.81) and 400 free relay (3:13.63).

Rathle went on to win the 200 IM individually, breaking the LHSAA Record with a 1:49.91. He then broke his own D3 Record with a 56.41 win in the 100 breast, narrowly missing another LHSAA Record by just over a tenth.

University High’s Chris Richardson took down the first individual record of the night. Richardson clocked in at 1:40.91 to beat the old D3 Record by almost 2 seconds. He also set a new D3 Record in the 100 back, winning in 50.61 ahead of Lusher Charter’s Derek Zhang (51.02), who was also under the old mark. Zhang set a record with a win of his own in the 100 fly, as he claimed that title with a 50.61 earlier in the meet.

University High’s Maddilyn Geyer set the lone D3 Record on the girls’ side. Geyer broke the record by nearly a second and dominated the field by 4 seconds with her 1:06.39. Calvary Baptist’s Sarah Holt nearly achieved a D3 Record in the 200 free. She was just 3 hundredths shy as she won in 1:52.54. Holt also won the 100 fly with a 56.36.

Correction: Rylee Moore broke two D3 records, one of which is also a LHSAA. In 100 back, she broke the D3/LHSAA record with her prelim time of 54.73; her lead-off (52.16) in the 400 relay in the final is also a new D3 record.
