Former South swimmer Reierson breaks record
MONTEREY PARK, Calif. — Former South Medford High swimmer Sarah Reierson broke an individual swim record for the University of San Diego and received all-conference honors after participating in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Swimming Championships.
The championships were at East Los Angeles College on Thursday through Sunday.
Reierson, a sophomore, qualified for the championship final in the 100- and 200-yard backstroke and the consolation championship for the 200 individual medley.
She clocked a personal-best time of 55.70 in the 100 back during preliminaries, setting the USD record. She set the old mark of 56.24 last year.
She took seventh in the finals with a time of 55.89.
Reierson placed fourth in the 200 back with a season-best 2:00.75, just shy of her school-record 2:00.42.
In the 200 IM, she had a PR of 2:03.83, winning the consolation championship final and shaving nearly two seconds off her qualifying time.
North Medford captured the high school boys bowling state championship Sunday, defeating Molalla for the title at Lava Lanes.
Sixteen teams competed.
North Medford had games of 224 and 215 for a total of 439 in the finals. Molalla went 185-246 for 431.
