It continues to be a record-breaking season for the Holy Trinity swimming and diving team.

Freshman Natalie Doig won a pair of races at the Class 1A, District 8 meet over the weekend, setting new school records in both events.

Doig finished first and broke the school record in the 200 free with a time of 1:57.20. She also broke her own record in the 500 free that she set earlier this season.

The pair of victories earned Doig a spot in the Region 3 meet, which is set for Saturday at Lake Highland Prep.

And she’ll have plenty of company as 18 swimmers qualified to move on. The Tigers finished fifth overall in the girls standings, eighth overall in the boys.

Senior Alex Spies, who broke a school record in the 100 fly earlier this season, finished second in the event (54.65) at the district finals and third in the 200 IM (2:01.76). Sophomore Luke LaGrone set a new personal record in the 500 free by over 12 seconds with a time of 5:50.42.
