PULLMAN, Wash. - University of Idaho freshman Shana Lim has competed just three times for the Vandals. And she already has her first school record.

Lim, from Singapore, blazed to the victory in the 100 meter backstroke at Washington State's annual Debbie Pipher Memorial Invitational. Lim was clocked in 55.36 seconds, which not only was more than half a second faster than the Vandal record but it was just a drop away from the pool mark of 55.30.

"She dominated the race," said coach Tom Jager, who was pleased with his team's Friday afternoon outing. "The rest of the team swam really well. I was really pleased with the way our athletes swam with heart."

That being said, Jager said he had hope the Vandals would be closer than the 19 points by which they trailed host Washington State after the first day. He said he would have liked to have seen a better race in the 800 free relay (the Vandals were second).

Sophomore Kelsie Saxe drew praise after her runner-up finishes in the 100 breast and the 100 fly.

The meet concludes Saturday.
