BYU swimmers set both the men’s and women’s 100 breaststroke records at the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation championships Friday night.

On the women’s side, Katie McBratney went 1:00.10, setting a BYU record. She unseats the league record set by Kionna Clayton of Hawaii at 1:00.36 in 2019. It’s also an NCAA B cut.

Josue Dominguez likewise set league and program marks in the men’s 100 breast, clocking in at 51.81 seconds. Also an NCAA B cut, it’s quicker than the meet mark set by Hawaii’s Olli Kokko in 2020 (52.34).

After three days of the four-day meet at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Hawaii leads the women’s team standings ahead of BYU. The BYU men are ahead of Hawaii in the team categories.

The BYU men won the medley relay Friday night, Dominguez joining 100 butterfly champ Nicholas Janvier (swimming backstroke), 100 breast runner-up Brad Prolo (swimming fly) and 100 fly runner-up Connor Stirling anchoring to win by nearly four seconds. Payton Plumb also won the 200 free for BYU.

On the women’s side, BYU also got wins from Summer Murphy in the 400 individual medley and Gwen Gustafson in the 200 free.
