Bennon VanHoof bested his own 100-yard breaststroke Enumclaw High School record Thursday with a winning time of 1 minute, 1.06 seconds.

The junior set the previous record early in the 2010-11 season with a time of 1:01.38.

The record-breaking pace is also a state-qualifying time.

The Hornets dropped the South Puget Sound League 3A meet to Peninsula 107-79.

In addition to VanHoof’s victory, EHS earned wins from the 200 medley relay team of Thomas Petersen, VanHoof, Gabe Sales and Will Cooper, which finished in state-qualifying time of 1:45.47. Cooper also won the 100 butterfly in 56.97 and the 500 freestyle in 5:08.38. Petersen won the backstroke with a time of 58.30. All three times on the edge of state qualifying.

The Hornets also got second-place finishes from Sales in the 100 backstroke, the 400 freestyle relay of Cooper, Petersen, Quinn Warner and VanHoof, VanHoof in the 200 individual medley and Logan Ross in the 100 freestyle.
