BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Florida Tech sophomores Dar Raz and Nir Barnea each topped their own school record times in the 100-yard freestyle preliminaries Saturday at the NCAA Championship at the IU Natatorium on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.
Raz took 41st in her preliminary race, dashing to a 52.45, one and a half tenths of a second faster than her previous school record in the event.
Barnea grabbed 25th with his 45.02, more than a second quicker than the FIT record that he previously held in the 100-yard race.
With the championship coming to a close, Raz and Barnea wrapped up the Panthers’ 2014-15 season, a campaign that saw the pair become the school’s first-ever NCAA Championship qualifiers.
