Brookfield Barracudas senior Brian Borden was named Classic 8/Greater Metro Conference Swimmer of the Year as he topped off his regular season by setting a conference record Saturday at the league meet at Waukesha South.

"We had an outstanding day as a team," said Brookfield coach William Twitchell on his team's third-place finish. "I would be remiss if I didn't commend senior and captain, Brian Borden, on his results from Saturday.

"Since the inception of this current conference, a Brookfield athlete has never been nominated for Swimmer of the Year. Not only was Mr. Borden named Swimmer of the Year for his excellent senior year, he also broke a conference record in the pool on Saturday."

Borden set the conference record in the 100-yard breaststroke (59.88 seconds), breaking Will Colbert's mark (59.97) set in 2007.

He also won the 200 IM in 1 minute, 56.55 seconds and was part of two fourth-place relay teams.

Sophomore Connor Rumpit had Brookfield's only second-place performance, finishing runner-up in the 500 freestyle (4:53.18).

Two relay teams and two individuals finished fourth for the Barracudas.

The 200 medley relay (1:41.00) behind Borden, freshman Ben Attenburger, Rumpit and senior Dean Zheng and the 400 free relay (3:18.85) behind Rumpit, Zheng, Attenburger and Borden were fourth.

The two individuals who took fourth were Attenburger in the 200 IM (2:02.09) and Rumpit in the 100 butterfly (tied, 55.53). Attenburger had the only fifth-place finish, that coming in the 100 breast (1:03.19).

Brookfield had three seventh-place finishes — senior Michael Flatley in the 200 free (1:56.67) and junior Daniel Lee in the 100 breast (1:04.59) and the 200 free relay (1:37.96) behind Flatley, sophomore Andrew Cao, junior Hanato Jing and junior Reinhold Hoffman.

Hoffman in the 200 free (1:57.43), Cao in the 500 free (5:24.32) and senior Tyler Patt in the 100 breast (1:04.87) all finished eighth.

Hoffman in the 500 free (5:25.99) took ninth as did the 200 medley relay (1:47.81) behind sophomore Tomer Korbelnikov, Lee, Patt and sophomore Corey Li.

Rounding out the top 10 finishers were five individual events and a relay team.

Korbelnikov in the 200 IM (2:07.36) and the 100 backstroke (57.27), Zheng in the 50 free (23.47) and the 100 fly (57.72) and sophomore Ben Everson in the 500 free (5:29.14) were the individual 10th-place finishes.

Also taking 10th was the 400 free relay (3:31.78) behind Hoffman, Lee, Korbelnikov and Flatley.

Brookfield will now take part in the Cedarburg Sectional, with diving taking place at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 14 and swimming at noon Feb. 15.
