From Erie CC Sports Information

BUFFALO, N.Y. –  Indian River (Fla.) State College’s Yurie Nakano set two meet records during Friday night’s action at the 2013 NJCAA Swimming and Diving Championships held at the Burt Flickinger Athletic Center.

IRSC’s quartet of Nakano, Patricia Casellas, Solyvette Lizardi and Courtney Parenti opened the night’s competition by combining for a time of 1:42.95 to top the mark of 1:43.46 set by IRSC in 2010. Nakano would later set the 100 butterfly record with a time of 53.27 seconds, breaking her own mark of 53.85 at the 2012 NJCAA Championships. Nakano would close her night by winning the 100 backstroke in 54.62, just shy of her mark of 54.35 set in the 400 medley relay at this year’s championships.

Lizardi won the 400 IM with a time of 4:25.02, cutting nine seconds from her time in the preliminaries, while Casellas added a title in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:02.46.

Not to be outdone, the IRSC men’s team had one swimmer win two individual titles and two others win an individual event and combine for a relay title. Joshua Oathout won the 400 IM and 100 backstroke events while Byron Wolkers (100 breast) and Chad Harrington (200 freestyle) were also part of the winning 200 medley team.

As a result of the strong finishes, IRSC leads the men’s standings with 1,213 points. Daytona State College is second at 837. On the women’s side, IRSC leads with 1,077 points while Daytona State is second at 599.
