COLUMBUS, Ohio - Jonathan Boffa swam a new school record in the 100 freestyle at the Last Ditch Qualifier at Ohio State University on Sunday. The previous school record, set by David Fox, had stood for 19 years.
Boffa's time of 43.05 topped Fox's mark by .02 seconds. His previous best time in the event was 43.34, which he swam at the ACC Championships earlier this season.
Boffa's mark in the 100 freestyle, an NCAA B standard, was quick enough to qualify him for the NCAA Championships in the event. The Men's NCAA Championships will be held in Federal Way, Wash., Mar. 22-24.
