ADA — Senior Drew Keriazes shattered his own school record in the 200 breast on the fourth and final day of the 2013 NCAA Division III Men's Swimming & Diving Championships Saturday afternoon at the Conroe Natatorium in Shenandoah, Tex.
Keriazes finished 19th in 2:04.47, beating his school record by nearly two seconds.
On Friday, Breitigam earned Honorable Mention All-America honors by finishing ninth in the 200 fly in 1:47.46, which broke his school record set in the prelims Friday afternoon.
His time was also the third-fastest in the meet and was better than six of the eight men in the finals.
Breitigam was ninth in the prelims in 1:48.76, which was just .16 seconds shy of eighth place and was a new ONU record at the time.
The top eight in each event earn All-American status and finishers 9-16 earn Honorable All-American honors.
This will be the second consecutive season Breitigam earned All-American status, as he finished in 15th place at last year's championships.
Also on Friday, Keriazes finished 22nd of 32 swimmers in the 100 breaststroke, posting a time of 57.11 seconds.
The foursome earned Honorable Mention All-American status in both the 200 and 400 medley relay earlier in the week.
ONU was 15th in the 200 medley relay in 1:32.25 on Wednesday and was 14th in 3:25.76 in the 400 medley relay on Thursday.
As a team, Ohio Northern sits tied for 24th with 19 points in the meet.
The Polar Bears posted an 10-2 record and won their ninth consecutive Ohio Athletic Conference title in 2012-13 under ninth-year head coach Peggy Ewald.
