BELOIT, Wis. — Brenna Yeutsy broke another school record in a double dual split against Beloit and Ripon Saturday afternoon.

Simpson defeated Beloit 150-38 and fell to Ripon 119-86.

"We were very competitive today," head coach Tom Caccia said. "Ripon is a strong, well-coached team and they had their swimmers in the right spot to do well against us."

Yeutsy won the 1000 freestyle in 11:36.78, finishing nearly 45 seconds ahead of the second-place finisher. She sets another school record with this time, beating out Hannah Yarbrough's 2011-12 record of 11:39.01. Yeutsy also finished second in the 100 freestyle in 58.80.

Cheyenne Wiederholt earned first place in the 100 backstroke with a time of 1:06.86 and Mikala Williams-Yee finished first in the 100 breastroke in 1:14.60.

"We wanted to find some things out before getting onto our invites," Caccia said. "We learned what we needed to know and I look forward to Grinnell in a couple of weeks."

The Storm will travel to Grinnell for the two-day Pioneer Classic on December 2 and 3. The invite begins Friday night at 6 p.m.
