Schombert helps break own record
OKLAHOMA CITY — Fairfield High School graduate Travis Schombert helped break his own Morningside school record in the 400-yard freestyle Friday.
Schombert, along with teammates Cole Malin, Kieran Sweeney and Ben Kurz, combined for a time of 3:13.05 at the 2013 NAIA Swimming & Diving National Championships at Oklahoma City Community College.
The record time smashed the former Morningside standard of 3:14.21 set by Schombert, Malin, Sweeney and James Svoboda at last year’s national championships.
Also at this year’s national championships, Schombert was part of the 10th-place 200-yard freestyle relay. The Lockridge native and college sophomore teamed up with Malin, Sweeney and Svoboda for a time of 1:28.21.
Schombert is a 2011 graduate of FHS.
