Sophomore Martyna Krawczyk touched in with a season-best time of 2:18.67 in the 200-yard breaststroke for the University of Miami swimming and diving team in a narrow loss to in-state foe Florida Atlantic on Saturday afternoon in Boca Raton, Fla.
The Hurricanes took first place in three events against the Owls, finishing first in the 200-yard breaststroke and the 100 and 200-yard backstroke, but could not overcome FAU who won the meet 165-123.
Krawczyk’s mark in the 200-yard breaststroke bettered her previous mark of 2:19.21 by nearly half a second.
Junior Katalin Ferenczi took two first place finishes for the Hurricanes, sweeping the 100 and 200-yard backstroke events. Ferenczi finished with a time of 58.30 in the 100 and 2:03.71 in the 200.
The Hurricanes automatically took the diving portion of the meet, as FAU did not submit a team.
