Lewis Sets Personal Best in 200 Fly to Highlight CMS Women's Swim and Dive's Regular Season Finale

CLAREMONT, Calif. - Augusta Lewis set a new personal best in the 200-yard butterfly with a 2:05.64, moving into fifth place in CMS history, as the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps women's swimming and diving team concluded the regular season at the Pomona-Pitzer Invitational on Saturday.

The event is a loose competition serves as the final preparation before the SCIAC Championships for the two cross-street rivals. In addition to no team scores being kept, the invitational also features swimmers competing in events outside of their specialties, as well as non-traditional events such as co-ed relays. 

Lewis, who usually swims the IM and the breaststroke, swam the 200 fly for the second time this season and improved her time by almost two seconds to move up from a tie for seventh into fifth on the CMS all-time list. 

Emma Ng Pack earned a win in the one-meter dive for CMS with a score of 285.80. Suzanne Starzyk took first in the 100-yard breastroke in 1:07.47, and Rachel Wander earned first in the 200-yard breaststroke in 2:27.28. Natalie Larsen, who usually swims the backstroke, took first in the 100 fly in 1:00.19.

CMS will next head to the SCIAC Championships, with the divers competing at Cal Lutheran this Saturday and Sunday. The swimmers will then head to La Mirada from Feb. 16-19, as the Athenas, who are currently ranked No. 11 in the country, will look to defend their 2020 title against a tough challenge from Pomona-Pitzer, which won the regular season dual meet between the teams back in December.
