After becoming the first Eastern swimmer to win an event at the Connecticut Cup as a freshman in 2017, sophomore Megan Lasto of Orange followed it up by winning three events and breaking a program record as the Warriors repeated their fourth-place finish  at the fourth annual championship Saturday at the Wesleyan University Natatorium. Lasto won the 400 individual medley again – this time breaking the eight-year-old record with a time of 4:40.22 – and added wins in the 200 individual medley (2:12.72) and 200 breaststroke (2:30.24) – events where she finished second a year ago. Her time in the 200 IM was just a little more than a half-second off the record that she set in that event at last year’s NEISDA Championships. . Her time in the 200 breaststroke  was a little less than a second off that mark. Five swimmers won multiple events in the meet, but  Lasto and Kristen Durham-Young of Coast Guard were the only triple winners.
