Red Wing senior Abbey Schnaith added another record to her illustrious career Thursday when she broke the school record and the pool record for the 100-yard backstroke.
Schnaith set the new mark at 59.83 seconds to win the event against Chanhassen at Twin Bluff Middle School. The previous school record was 1:00.35 and the previous pool record was 1:00.84. Schnaith already owned the school record but not the pool record.
Schnaith also saw one of her records fall at the meet as Chanhassen’s Kaia Grobe set a new pool record in the 50 free. Grobe swam in 23.84 seconds to beat the old mark of 24.06, set by Schnaith. Schnaith finished second in the race with a time of 24.5.
