Smit Owns Pool Record in 200 Free

DeNunzio's Pool is officially Mike Smit's ('07, Cornell) to own. Well at least in the 200 Free it is.

Although he was off the pace that he posted in the 2006 meet by .1 second, his 1:35.52 erased a pool record that has been in existence since 1:36.33. The original mark was held by Mike Kiedel of Harvard, who also owns the EISL record.

Smit is also making a very compelling case for another Swimmer of the Meet distinction. Not surprisingly, Smit and Geoff Rathgeber of Harvard were co-Swimmers of the Meet last year, and both appear poised to compete for the distinction again this year.
