With the Lodi Parks and Re­cre­ations’ City Swim Cham­pi­onships go­ing late into the night on Fri­day night, an­other pair of records fell.

Ash­ton DeVries of the Pi­ran­has swam the boys 13-14-year-old but­ter­fly in 27.21 sec­onds to beat Bobby Stern­fels’ record of 27.56 set in 1984, and Ben­ton Peter­son of the Dol­phins swam the 1518-year-old breast­stroke in 29.86 to beat Justin Sotelo’s 30.21 set in 2006.

The pair’s feat brought the to­tal num­ber of records bro­ken in the two-day meet to five — DeVries al­ready head one record to his name with Thurs­day’s 24.16 in the boys 13-14 50-yard freestyle pre­lim­i­nar­ies, and Nathan Lar­son set two in the pre­lim­i­nar­ies — the 11-12 boys 50 back­stroke (32.27) and the 50 breast­stroke (35.81).

Over­all, the Seals won the cham­pi­onship with 3,147.5 points, fol­lowed closely by the Dol­phins at 3,018. The Pi­ran­has came in third at 2,767 and the Tri­tons were fourth at 2,344.5.
