2:08.81. Donelan broke a 22-year-old school record with a time of

2:08.31 in the 200 butterfly. The Utah women won, 165.5-132.5.

In the men's 100 backstroke, UCI sophomore Gonny Shimura set a

meet record with his winning time of 52.04. Shimura also claimed

victory in the 200 back (1:55.19). The Utah men won, 168-130.

The Anteaters will be host to the Big West Shootout Nov. 1 and
