Emily Lundgren Sets Two Washington State Pool Records in Rout of Idaho

Emily Lundgren set two of Washington State’s six pool records Friday night in a 162-92 win over Idaho.

Lundgren swept the breaststroke events at Gibb Pool in Pullman. She won the 100 breast in 1:01.41, a second quicker than the pool mark that Zoe Bartel of Stanford had set in 2018. In the 200 breast, she nicked .17 seconds off Isabelle Odgers’ 2020 mark with her winning time of 2:12.87.

The Cougars took down both relay records. The 200 medley relay went 1:40.44, comprising Anna Rauchholz, Hailey Grotte, Kaya Takashige and Selena Duran. Duran anchored the 400 free relay that set a pool standard of 3:21.08, teaming with Angela Di Palo, Dori Hathazi and Kirsten de Goede.

Four of the five pool records came straight out of the chute to begin the meet. Di Palo won the 200 free in 1:48.14. She chipped .76 seconds off the mark Bonnie Brandon of Arizona set in 2014.

Rauchholz followed with a 54.10 in the 100 back for the pool mark, then Lundgren won the 100 breast.

The team competition was settled early by the Cougars. Di Palo also won the 100 free and was second in the 50 to de Goede, who had been second in the 200 free. Lundgren added a win in the 100 individual medley. Hathazi won both butterfly events, with Takashige second team time. Takashige was also second to Lundgren in the 100 IM. Rauchholz finished second to teammate Kiana Swain in the 200 back. Jewel Springer won the 400 IM, and Lauren Wille claimed the 500 free for the Cougars.
