Central York grad Arganbright honored: Following a record-setting weekend, California University of Pennsylvania junior Jade Arganbright, a Central York High School graduate, was named the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Swimmer of the Week on Tuesday afternoon.
Arganbright set a pair of pool records at Hamer Hall and helped the Vulcans earn dual-meet victories over Davis & Elkins and Fairmont State on Saturday. She broke both the 100 and 200 breaststroke pool records that were previously held by three-time national champion and 10-time NCAA All-American Melissa Gates in 2012.
Arganbright registered the fastest time in the PSAC, and No. 12 in NCAA Division II, this season in the 100 breaststroke after touching the wall in 1 minute, 3.78 seconds. She also swam the 200 breaststroke as an exhibition and shattered the pool record by 4.5 seconds after posting a time of 2:19.76. Both of her record-setting performances in the breaststroke reached the NCAA Championship 'B' standard. Arganbright also was the lead leg of the 200 medley relay that won the event by nearly eight seconds with a time of 1:49.64, which was only 0.23 seconds shy of matching the pool record set in 2010.
