Hanford High School graduate Christine Tixier, swimming for Biola, won two women’s titles at the NAIA swimming championships.
Tixier finished the 200 IM on Thursday night in 2 minutes, 4.48 seconds, less than half of a second off the NAIA record.
On Friday Tixier, seeded first in the 100 butterfly, was trailing by almost a whole body length after 50 meters. But she rallied to not only win, but shattered her own NAIA record.
Tixier, now a three-time champion in this event, finished in 54.36 seconds — beating her old mark of 54.60.
Never miss a local story.
Tixier is also seeded No. 1 in Saturday’s 200 butterfly.
