Freshman Andrew Battles of Trinity Shatters SCAC 1650-Yard Freestyle Record

Andrew Battles competing in his first ever SCAC Championships meet shattered a record that had stood since 2001 set by former Trinity swimmer Ryan Van Der Kar. Battles who swam the 1650-yard free in 15:56.95 broke the previous record by over 15 seconds. A native of Colleyville, Texas, Battles became the first swimmer from Trinity to win this event since 2005.
