CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Catawba set two school records on the men's side on the opening night of the Bluegrass Mountain Conference Swimming Championships on Wednesday night at the Mecklenburg Aquatic Center.  Finn Furstenwerth (Hamburg, Germany/Gymnasium Farmsen) set a new mark in the 1000 free, while the men also set a record in the 800 free relay.

Furstenwerth finished fourth overall in the 1000 free with his record swim of 9:33.13 which was also a NCAA II 'B' cut time.  He broke the old mark of Andrew McCollister (Rockwell, N.C./Salisbury HS) by seven seconds.  McCollister placed seventh this year with a time of 9:48.00 which became the fourth fastest time in school history.

The 800 free relay team of  Sebastian Holmberg (Akersberga, Sweden/Skolan), Theo Zatterstrom (Stockholm, Sweden/Fryshuset), Toomas Goutt (Saint Witz, France/de Vinci) and Dominik Brus (Krakow, Poland/Loms Krakow) posted a new record time of 6:42.41 to finish fifth.  The time was a 'B' cut.

Brus, Jevgenij Gamper (Vilnius, Lithuania/Kachialov), Holmberg and Goutt went fourth with a 'B' cut time of 1:29.95 in the 200 medley relay.  That time took the third spot in the record book.

For the women, Anna Barnes (Suwanee, Ga./N. Gwinett HS/Darton St.) took a ninth place in the 1000 free which was the only individual event of the first night.  Her time of 10:44.60 was the fourth best time in school history. 

In the relays, Catawba placed eighth in the 200 medley and seventh in the 800 free.  The 800 free team of Nadine Brockmann (Hamburg, Germany/Ossietzsky), Amy Cujas (Mocksville, N.C./Forsyth Country Day), Barnes and Katia Kruglov (Karmiel, Israel/Ort Kramim) posted the second best time in school history at 7:49.85. 

The men currently sit third among a dozen teams with the women standing in sixth of 13 teams.  The BMC Championships will run through Saturday at the Mecklenburg Aquatic Center.
