KAILUA-KONA - Renny Richmond continued to pile on the titles at the state age-group short course championships Sunday at Kona Community Aquatic Center. But it was his Lahaina Swim Club teammate who made history.

Ridge Altman set a Hawaii state record in the 200-yard individual medley, posting a time of 1 minute, 49.23 seconds in the boys 17-18 final. He broke the previous record of 1:49.68 set by Hongzhe Sun of Iolani in 2003.

Richmond finished second in the 200 IM (1:50.94), but won the 100 freestyle in an age-group record time of 45.12 and beat out Altman and Joshua Gaastra in the 100 backstroke with a time of 50.42. The Lahaina trio went 1-2-3 in the event.

They ended the day teaming with Alex Armstrong to win the 200 medley relay in 1:36.92.

Richmond so far has won five individual events during the four-day meet.
