HOUSTON – Greg Raper of Seattle University men’s swimming swam the second-best 50 freestyle in school history on day two of the 2019 Western Athletic Conference (WAC) Championships. The 200 freestyle relay also tallied the second-fastest effort in SU history Thursday at the CRWC Natatorium.

“We had some strong swims today," said Coach Craig Nisgor. "The 200 free relay was a great way to start things off. We have every class represented in that group, which is exciting to see. We competed really hard and it's exciting to see some top times."

Raper notched a 20.12 in the 50 freestyle finals, narrowly missing the medal stand. The time is the second-fastest in Seattle U history.

In the 200 freestyle relay, Raper, Isaac Parker, Ian Keane, and Tyler Goodspeed swam the third-fastest time in program history. The group touched in 1:21.69 Thursday.

Freshman Juan Varela established a lifetime best in the 500 freestyle, while Ryan Shaw and Kyle Bailey did the same in the 200 IM. Goodspeed's 50 freestyle effort was also a personal-best time.

The meet continues tomorrow, with the 400 IM, 100 butterfly, 200 freestyle, 100 breaststroke, 100 backstroke, and 400 medley relay on Friday’s schedule.
