Dec. 3, 2005
USC freshman Rebecca Soni set her second school record in as many days, this time in the 200y breaststroke, while junior teammate Mihaly Flaskay won the same event on the final day of the 2005 Texas Invitational at the Joe Jamail Swim Center in Austin, Texas, on Saturday (Dec. 3).
Soni, who won two breaststroke medals at the 2005 World University Games, won the 200y breast in 2:08.54, shattering the old mark set by Kristine Quance of 2:09.57 in 1996 (USC's second oldest individual record on the women's side).
Flaskay won the men's event in 1:58.23 while senior Joon Youm was third (158.59).
Sophomore Emily Goetsch was second in the 200y fly (1:59.80) while sophomore Viktor Bodrogi (1:44.78, NCAA automatic) and junior Sam Masson (1:46.18, NCAA consideration) were second and fourth in the event, respectively.
