MEN’S SWIMMING

NEW WILMINGTON — Junior Michael Spencer (Clearfield) triggered a record-breaking effort by the 200-yard freestyle team in the meet’s final event that lifted Westminster to a 154-146 Presidents’ Athletic Conference victory over Grove City Thursday.

His 22.03-second split gave the Titans a lead of .54 seconds, and senior Daniel Bogen, junior Clay Murray and senior Mitch Stahara went on to make it a 1:26.72 performance that broke the Westminster pool record of 1:27.33 set by a Bethel Park High School foursome in 1996.

Spencer also contributed important points to the Titans’ fourth PAC win without a defeat by winning the 50 free in 21.86 seconds and placing third in the 100 free in 49.16.

He swam a 23.35 butterfly leg for the Titan ‘B’ 200 medley quartet that finished fourth in 1:39.56.

On Saturday, Spencer led off with a 51.23 split for the 400 free relay foursome that was victorious in 3:16.42 to cap a 188-110 Senior Day non-conference win over Mount Union for an 8-1 record.

In addition, he placed second in the 50 free in 22.22, fourth in the 100 free in 50.50 and sixth in the fly in 57.62.
