Katherine Foley ’13 smashed Bowdoin’s 1000-meter freestyle record by three-quarters of a second on Saturday as both the men’s and women’s swim teams beat NESCAC rival Colby by a landslide in their home pool.  

The men beat Colby by a score of 211-83 while the women won 198-95.

For the women, Foley dominated the pool, winning both the 1000- and 500-freestyles with times of 10:33.19 and 5:12.86, the first of which broke the school record that had stood for eight years. Foley, in her final season at Bowdoin, now has two appearances in the team’s record book—she also holds the fastest time in the 500-yard freestyle, which she broke last year. 

“It was satisfying to get the record in the 1000 at this point in the season, as I’ve been doing distance training all year,” Foley said.

Among the team’s other impressive performances, Teri Faller ’15 won the 100- and 200-backstrokes with times of 1:01.00 and 2:15.13. In the breaststroke, Maeve O’Leary ’14 won the 100- and 200-yard races with times of 1:09.58 and 2:32.88. Captain Kaley Kokomoor ’13 took the 50- and 100-yard frees with times of 25.24 and 55.01. Lela Garner ’16 came in first place in the 200-IM with a time of 2:14.38. Bridget Killian ’16 took first in the 100-free with a time of 1:55.44.

For the men, captain Basyl Stuyvesant ’13 won both the 100- and 200-backstrokes with times of 52.75 and 1:56.75. Linc Rhodes ’14 won the 1000-free with a time of 10:30.20 while Peter Deardorff ’15 took the 200-free with a time of 1:45.41. In the breaststroke, John Lagasse ’16 won the 100-yard event with a time of 59.73 and JR Chansakul ’15 took came in first in the 200 with a time of 2:12.66. Ryan Kulesza ’15 won the 200-IM with a time of 1:58.09. William Shi ’15 won the 50-free with a time of 21.84 while Kevin Koh ’15 won the 100-butterfly with a time of 51.86.
