Catawba sophomore Ashley Owens (Stockbridge, GA/Stockbridge HS) highlighted a pair of swim meets over the weekend for the Catawba Indians as she broke an American Paralympic Record in the 1000 free with a swim of 10:44.68 against Limestone on Saturday. The time broke the previous mark by nearly a full second. The time was the second fasted in school history and was also a NCAA II “B” cut time.

Against Limestone, Lindsay Yarborough (Lexington, NC/C. Davidson HS) picked up a win in the 200 back. Catawba’s women also claimed relay wins at Pfeiffer in the 400 free and 400 medley, while taking the 200 medley relay at Limestone. Freshman Taft Kallam (Randleman, NC/Randleman HS) posted the lone win for the men over the weekend as he touched first against Pfeiffer in the 100 back.
