Burnaby’s Mariya Chekanovych had a huge weekend helping a Simon Fraser University relay team set a school record as well as setting an individual conference record at the Pacific Collegiate Swimming Conference championship in La Mirada, Calif.

Her time of 1:01.85 in the 100-yard breaststroke also was the fastest in the NCAA this year beating out the second-place finisher from Fresno Pacific by more than a second. Later in the meet Chekanovych won the 200 breaststroke.

She also was part of the winning 200-yard medley relay team that set a school record of 1:44.51, and the 400-yard medley team that won in 3:46.13 as well as the 400 freestyle team that won in 3:27.53.
