CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee, November 4. BAYLOR’s Sam McHugh closed out his team’s hosted meet the Martha Bass Invitational with two more pool records yesterday after notching a trio of the facility marks on day one.
McHugh, who is remaining in state for college as a future Tennessee Volunteer in the Class of 2014, raced to a 1:50.96 in the 200-yard IM. That knocked nearly a second off the previous record of 1:51.7 that he has set back in February according to Baylor head coach Dan Flack.
McHugh returned later in the afternoon with a swift 1:49.27 in the 200-yard fly. That swim beat a 2004 mark of 1:49.7 set by Matt Bartlett.
On day one, McHugh first blasted a 1:40.30 in the 200-yard free, taking down the previous pool record of 1:40.6 held by Martin Grodzki. McHugh then clocked a 49.65 in the 100-yard fly to break the pool record of 50.0 previously owned by Reese Shirey. McHugh closed out the night with a 3:56.6 (official time not yet available) to demolish his previous mark of 4:03.2 in the 400-yard IM.
