Four New School Records From Hotchkiss and Mullis

Four New School Records From Hotchkiss and Mullis

MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. - UC Santa Barbara swimmers end their season with a bang bringing home four new UCSB school records. Logan Hotckiss took home new school records in the 1000 freestyle and the 1650 freestyle while teammates Billy Mullis brought home new school records in the 200 butterfly and the 200 backstroke. 

Up against the fastest in the country, Mullis and Hotchkiss proved themselves by leaving it all in the pool and dropping in every single event on Sat. March 24.

Head Coach Matt Macedo commented, "Billy set the pace for the morning by breaking his previous school record and dipping under 1:41 in the 200 backstroke. He came back within the hour to finish 17th in the 200 fly, shattering his previous school record with a time of 1:42.49. Logan Hotchkiss had our final swim of the meet, the 1650 freestyle and broke 2 school records in the process. Logan's 1000 split of 9:01.87 breaks an 18 year old record held by Carl Larsen and his final time of 15:01.62 breaks Logan's own record he set in December at the Husky Invitational."
 
Mullis has swam his last four years at UCSB and is contemplating continuing his career by training for the 2020 Olympic Trials. The Vacaville, Calif. native will be graduating from UCSB within the year with a double major in pyschology and economics. He has broken numerous school records along with winning the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championship two years in a row. 
 
Similar to Mullis, Hotckiss has earned two MPSF Championships as well as broken a number of school records. The Malibu, Calif. native looks forward to competing next year for the Gaucho men in his senior year at UCSB. 
 
Macedo continued, "While we fell just short of our overall goal of scoring at the meet, I am very proud of Logan, Billy and my staff. To break 4 school records at the fastest meet in the world is a great way to finish the season and we hope to return next year and see if we can be better. Go Gauchos!"
