LOUDONVILLE, NY – A pair of pool records fell at the Siena Swim Center as Siena Swimming & Diving (5-3) continued home action by hosting Stony Brook (2-2) on Saturday morning. The Saints fell in dual meet action to the Seawolves by a score of 157-143 in their second of five home meets this season.
Senior Rory Kalac swam a 24.04 in the 50 free to down the previous pool record o 24.09 set in 2020, while the 400 free team of sophomore Kylie Carter, sophomore Maddie Buck, freshman Kaci Owens, and Kalac turned in a time of 3:35.37 to best the previous pool mark of 3:37.82 set by Siena in 2010. The performances marked the second consecutive week that the Saints set a pool record inside their home facility.
Despite Stony Brook pulling out the dual meet victory by winning eight events, the Saints saw a slew of best times and accomplishments. Junior Audrey Shultz swam to best times while winning the 100 breast (1:07.93), 200 breast (2:24.59), and 200 IM (2:14.24), with her time in the 100 breast keeping her at ninth on the program’s All-Time Top-Ten Performance List, while her 200 breast mark propelled her from ninth to third, and under four seconds off of the school record.
