LYNCHBURG, Va. (February 23, 2019) – Howard University’s senior swimmer KaSandra Kaplan (Detroit) added to her stellar collegiate career by shattering three more school records Saturday at the Coastal Collegiate Sports Association (CCSA) Championships.


In the women’s 400 Free Relay, Kaplan, alongside junior Leanne McMaster (Kingston, Jamaica) and newcomers Madison Freeland (Glenside, Pa.) and Myka Thomas (Philadelphia), served as the squad’s leadoff swimmer where she broke the school’s 100 Free (51.97), downing her own mark set last year (52.21).

Additionally, the four Bison set a program record in the event, registering a 3:32.52 time. The previous mark was established at the 2018 H2ounds Invitational (3:34.92).

Individually, Kaplan reset the record book in the 200 Butterfly, producing a new benchmark in the prelims (2:08.59).

Freeland, McMaster and Thomas also etched themselves in the record book. Freeland earned the school’s eighth (2:14.88) and ninth (2:15.43) fastest marks in the 200 Butterfly while McMaster swam the fourth (2:26.10) and eighth (2:28.39) best times in the 200 Breast. Thomas posted a new personal best in the 100 Free, which was the sixth-best in program history.

Senior Latroya Pina (Seeknok, Mass.) competed in her final collegiate meet where she recorded the ninth (2:28.78) and 10th (2:30.43) fastest times in the 200 Breast.
