FAIRBANKS — Sophomore Margot Adams set a new pool record and the Alaska Nanooks completed a dual meet sweep of California Baptist Saturday afternoon at the Patty Center Pool.

After beating Cal Baptist for the first time Friday night, ending a seven-year drought, the Nanooks came back to win by the identical score of 113-92 on Saturday.

As was the case Friday, the Nanooks captured both relays and six individual events, highlighted by Adams’ victory in the 200-yard butterfly.

Adams, who was swimming the 200 butterfly for the first time, put up a time of 2 minutes, 8.51 seconds, to edge the previous record set by Simon Fraser’s Gia Bogetti’s record of 2:08.57 set in 2008.

Adams also had a role in both of the Nanooks’ winning relays.

She teamed up with sophomore Gabi Summers, freshman Eileen Audett and Junior Bente Heller to win the 200 medley relay in 1:51:59.

In the final event of the weekend, Adams hooked up with Danielle Lyons, sophomore Kendra Ashwell and sophomore Genevieve Johnson to win the 400 freestyle relay in 3:45.07.

Summers and Heller each won a pair of individual races, while Lyons accounted for the Nanooks other victory.

Summers won the 200 freestyle in 1:59.00 and the 500 freestyle in 5:17.52, while Heller took the top spot in the 50 freestyle in 24.60 and the 100 freestyle, touching the wall in 52.75

Lyons had a strong second half of the 400 individual medley to post a winning time of 4:44.59.

Johnson was second to Heller in the 100 freestyle with a time of 56.92 and third in the 200 breaststroke in 2:35.13, while sophomore Lauren Bailey placed third in the 1,650 freestyle in 18:47.24 and freshman Nina Mullin took third in the 400 individual medley in the 400 IM (5:01.86).

California Baptist picked individual wins from Ashley Weedman, Hazel Castillo and Molly Larson.

Weedman won the 1,650 freestyle in 18:24.47 and took third in the 200 backstroke (2:20.63).

Castillo was the top finisher in the 200 backstroke in 2:17.83 and was second in the 200 butterfly (2:10.69).

Larson won the 200 breaststroke in 2:32.07 to go along with her runner-up showing in the 400 individual medley (4:48.19).
