Posted April 10: Robyn Lewis isn’t just putting herself on the state girls swimming championship schedule, she’s felling Bonner Springs school records in the process.

Lewis had a hand in breaking two school records in the Braves’ first meet of the season last month and was just four-tenths of a second off from breaking another on Monday.

Lewis broke the 200-yard free style record by more 2.66 seconds with a time of 2:14.86 at Topeka High on March 28, and her 200-yard freestyle relay team that also included Madison Stumbough, Cheyanne Miller and Lei’Onna Smith broke the school record in the event by eight-tenths of a second. Both finishes earned state qualifications.

Smith, Stumbough, Miller and Lewis also qualified for state in the 400-yard freetyle relay at Washington High on April 1, falling just short of another school record. Against Washington, a combination team of Piper and Bishop Ward, and Lansing, the Braves won seven of 12 events at the April 1 meet. Meanwhile, Lewis already locked up either state qualifying or consideration times in six events through just two meets.

Two more school records fell at the Braves’ first home meet of the season on April 3 against Shawnee Mission East, Turner and Lansing. Lewis, Smith, Miller and Stumbough shattered the 400-yard freestyle relay record by nearly seven seconds and Lewis knocked down the 500-yard freestyle record by more than 16 seconds, qualifying for state with a time of 6:12.64.

And on Monday, at Blue Valley West, Lewis nearly broke yet another record with her latest state-qualifying mark in the 100-yard butterfly. Lewis finished with a time of 1:10.29, just 0.41 seconds off the school record but enough to put her in another state event.
