Fredonia senior Adam Clouthier (Conroe, Texas) set a new school and conference school record in the 100-yard breaststroke during Friday morning at the 2017 SUNYAC Swimming & Diving championships meet.

Clouthier qualified first with a time of 56.70 seconds, a new record by three-hundredths of one second, then came back during the Friday night session and finished what he started. He won the event in a time of 56.31 seconds, an NCAA Division III B-Cut qualifier.

Fredonia sophomore Jake Favret (Watertown) finished second in 57.06 seconds after earning the No. 2 seed during preliminaries. Favret's seed time was 57.31 seconds. In addition, senior Liam Jones (Buffalo, N.Y.) tied for 10th in 1:01.85 as part of Friday's consolation final. The Blue Devils earned 43.5 team points in the event. They finished the day third of nine teams.

Clouthier's record preliminary time bested the previous conference record by three-hundredths of one second. It was set by the late Jack Jakubek of Cortland in 2014. Also, the school record that Clouthier broke was his own -- a 57.18 clocking in 2015.
