Vavras set records at ESU
Senior Sami Vavra and sophomore Karoline Vavra set school records as East Stroudsburg University finished its fall semester schedule at the Diamond City Invitational on Friday and Saturday.
ESU finished first of eight schools and was the only Division II team in the field. Scranton and Misericordia led the Division III challengers.
Sami Vavra broke the school record in the 200 breast in a time of 2:27.05, lowering the previous record of 2:27.05 set by Sarah Roscioli in 2010. Her time is the eighth-best in the PSAC this season. Vavra also set records in the 50 (30.74) and 100 (1:06.70) last year and was second in the 100 breast (1:08.05) this weekend.
Karoline Vavra broke the 200 free record with a time of 1:57.37, edging the mark of 1:57.53 recorded by Sally Kaminski in 2006. She adds the record to her 100 free record from last season. She won the 50 free in 24.64 and 100 free in 53.55, seven-hundredths off her record of 53.48.
Karoline Vavra's time in the 200 free ranks 15th in the PSAC.
