Larson Breaks Own Pool Record, WSU Beats Idaho on Senior Night
PULLMAN, Wash. (Jan. 29, 2021) – Senior Chloe Larson highlighted an impressive senior night performance for Washington State Women's Swimming, breaking her own Gibb Pool record in the Cougars' 162-98 victory over Idaho Friday evening.
WSU (4-1) claimed 13 of the 14 races as seniors Mackenzie Duarte (100 breast, 200 breast, 100 IM) and Taylor McCoy (400 IM, 100 back, 200 back) tied for the team-lead with three wins a piece while freshmen Jose Liebzeit and Kiana Swain each posted wins in the 200 free and 200 fly, respectively.
Larson, who broke the pool record in the 50 free two weeks ago, surpassed her own mark by .11 and also notched her second NCAA B time of the season while claiming the 50 free. Freshman Hailey Grotte won the 100 free and fellow freshman newcomer Kaya Takashige won the 100 fly. Washington State also won both relay events (400 medley and 200 free relay).
Next up for the Cougars will be the Pac-12 Conference Championships Feb. 24-27.
