It’s one thing to break a school record as freshman.

Port Washington’s Charlie Prince has done it twice.

Prince, who broke the Pirates’ record in the 100-yard breaststroke in the first meet of the season at Hartford/Slinger, shattered that mark on Jan. 19 against West Bend Co-op.

Prince’s first record time was 1 minute, 2.74 seconds, topping the old mark of 1:04.

Last Thursday, he beat that time, finishing the race in 1:02.05 and winning the event.

Prince also won the 50 freestyle in 23.44 seconds.

Those were Port’s only victories in a 113-64 loss to West Bend Co-op.

The Pirates had seven events finish second, including diver Cory Riel with a personal record of 148 points.

Prince had a hand in one of the seconds, helping the 200 medley relay to a time of 1:52.28. Jack Sickles, Ben Falkenberg and Maksym Kasiyanchuk were the others in the relay.

Griffin Sheriff was second in the 200 individual medley with a personal-record 2:45.31.

Falkenberg was second in the 100 butterfly in 1:05.72.

Tim Zeien was second in the 100 freestyle with a personal-record 59.23.

Sickles was second in the 500 freestyle in 5:26.66.

Port finishes the regular season at Whitefish Bay on Thursday, Jan. 26.

The Pirates compete in the North Shore Conference dive meet at Homestead on Thursday, Feb. 2, and the conference swim meet on Saturday, Feb. 4.
