Picking up his second school record of the meet, Padric Mckervill clocked in at 24.56 in the 50 fly for the new Vikes record. Earlier in the season, Mckervill matched Alec Page's record time of 24.80, set Jan. 25, 2013. Today's performance tied for 14th and secured a place in the B Finals.

Claiming her second A Final appearance in as many days, Sophie Tarrant's 2:30.17 in the 200 breast was good for third overall in the prelims. Bringing home the first medal of the meet for the Vikes, Tarrant claimed bronze and set a new school record in the 200 breast, dropping nearly three seconds off her prelim time to touch the wall in 2:27.44. Her time also bested UVic Sports Hall of Fame member Christin Petelski's school record time of 2:27.89, which had been in place since Jan. 1, 1998.

Taking seventh in the 200 fly A Final, Brunoro came away with a time of 2:20.11 to improve one spot from her eighth-place prelims finish. 

Shaving time off the school record he set in the prelims, Mckervill won the 50 fly B Finals with a time of 24.17, down from 24.56 in the prelims. Adding a second B Final win, Mckervill clocked in at 1:59.38 to win the 200 fly B Final. Setting his second Vikes record of the meet, Jacob Rambo swam 54.48 in the 100 back to dethrone Buzz Mallender's time of 54.70 set Feb. 21, 2019. Rambo's time was good for second in the B Final. Adding another Vikes win in the B Finals, Lauren Crisp took the top spot in the 100 back B Final with a time of 1:01.43. The Vikes also picked up three C Final wins with Cameron Hill in the 50 fly (28.03), Elijah Agostinelli Stull in the 400 free (3:53.55), and Ethan Hemeon in the 200 breast (2:12.99).

UVic's men's relay team set a new school record for the second-straight night, this time in the 4x200 free relay. Finishing fifth overall with a time of 7:21.38, Agostinelli Stull, Ricky Millns, Rambo and William Risk unseated the previous Vikes record time of 7:22.17 set Feb. 21, 2013.

Last day of racing takes place Sunday. Stay strong and Go Vikes Go!
