Patrick Duvall, who finished up his Buccaneer swimming career at this past weekend’s Midwest Conference Swimming & Diving Championships, exits the pool with more Beloit College records than anyone in the history of the program.
In three seasons, he set--and holds--individual records in the 200 Free, 100 Back, 100, and 200 Fly and the 200 and 400 IM. He actually broke his own record in the 100 Fly on Saturday at the championships.
But that’s not all.
He is also a member of four record-setting relay teams: the 200 Free, 800 Free, 200 Medley, and 400 Medley. The 800 Free Relay record he helped break on Saturday at the championships was the oldest record on the Beloit books, having been set back in 1982.
Duvall won five MWC Championships in his career and was the 2008 MWC Male Swimmer of the Year.
So now you know.
