ROCKWELL, TX - The Florida Atlantic swimming and diving teams finished up their competition at the Sun Belt Conference Championships on Saturday by bringing home three more wins and breaking three more school records as well.

Freshman Anett Kovacs did both, in the 200-yard butterfly. She touched the wall first in a time of 1:58.39, which broke the mark she had set back in November of 2011.

FAU swept that event on both sides, as Mikolaj Czarnecki took the men's race in a time of 1:46.66, winning by the most miniscule of margins, one-one-hundredth of a second.

Also earning another individual championship, her second of the competition, was Eszter Bucz, in the 1,650-yard freestyle. The junior won that event in a time of 16:30.94.

Breaking school records on Saturday as well were Iwona Lefanowicz, in the 200-yard backstroke, and the men's 400-yard freestyle relay team.

Lefanowicz bettered her own mark that she set last November, by finishing in a time of 1:59.70. The men's combination of Eric Williams, John Walsh, Anthony Fermin and Czarnecki broke the school record set last year at the SBC Championships, with a new record of 2:59.06.

Also on the final day, finishing third on the 1-meter board was freshman Nick Delong, earning a score of 294.60.

In total over the four-day competition, the FAU swimmers and divers had six SBC champions and broke 14 school records.
