DAVIS, Calif. – In its first double-dual matchup of the season, Nevada swimming and diving came out on top of both UC Davis and Cal State East Bay on Friday afternoon to improve its dual competition win streak to 14 meets, which dates back to last season. The two victories on the day give the Wolf Pack a 4-0 record in its dual meets this season.

“We were led by our divers today and I thought this was our best meet of the season,” Nevada head coach Brendon Bray said. “We continue to get better. UC Davis is a good team and we knew they were going to be a big challenge for us, so we’re happy we stepped up to the challenge and performed well.”

Nevada won 11 of the 16 events on the day, which helped lead the team to its 169-126 victory over UC Davis and a 195-96 win over Cal State East Bay. The Pack was led by the diving squad, who took the top three spots in both the 1-meter and 3-meter springboard.

In her first appearance of the season, junior Sharae Zheng posted a score of 409.80 on the 3-meter springboard, which was good enough to not only win the event but break the pool record as well. She would end up sweeping the diving competition after recording a 348.85 on the 1-meter springboard and placing first in that event.

The swimming core was primarily led by its veterans, as seniors Sita Kusserow and Teresa Baerens each had three top three finishes on the afternoon. Kusserow finished the afternoon with two wins coming in the 200-yard butterfly and in the 100-yard butterfly, as well as a second place finish in the 1,000-yard freestyle. Baerens collected two victories of her own, after swimming the 100-yard freestyle in 51.86 and the 200-yard freestyle in 1:50.38.

Their senior counterpart Riley Hilbrandt posted two victories as well. She finished the day placing first in both the 100-yard breaststroke with a time of 1:04.81 and the 200-yard breaststroke, swimming that event in 2:18.69.

“I’m really proud of our three seniors, who combined to win six individual events today. They have been an intricate part of our team’s success so far this year,” Bray said.

Junior Jaeger Turner contributed to a pair wins, after swimming the 100-yard backstroke in 56.24 and helping lead the A team to the victory in the 400-yard medley relay. Sophomore Jamie Reynolds swam her way to a win in the 50-yard freestyle, recording a 24.11 in the process. She also contributed to the A team’s win in the 400-yard medley relay.

Up next, the diving team will compete in the Northern Arizona Diving Invitational from Nov. 17-19 in Flagstaff, Ariz. Afterwards, The Wolf Pack will travel south to Las Vegas, Nev. and participate in the UNLV Swimming Invitational from Dec. 1-3.

DAVIS, Calif. — UC Davis senior Marissa Brown won a pair of events and the Aggies won four overall on the day to help them to a split of a double dual at the Schaal Aquatics Center, defeating Cal State East Bay, 227-67, but falling to Nevada, 169-126, on Friday afternoon.

Brown took home victories in the 1000 free, touching in a season-best time of 10:17.53, while posting her second win of the season in the 500 free with a time of 5:04.59. The senior from Danville, Calif., owns the Aggies’ top three times in the latter event, including a season-best 5:01.79 to finish third at UCLA on Oct. 22.

Laughlin, meanwhile, posted her third win of the year (in four meets) in the 200 back, finishing with a time of 2:02.92 — her third-fastest in the event this season behind a season-best 2:02.08 last week against BYU. She also posted her second-fastest time of the year in the 100 back to finish third, touching in a time of 57.57.

The Aggies also got first-place points from their 400 free relay team after Nevada had exhibitioned their teams in the event, finishing with a season-best time of 3:30.50 — two-tenths of a second faster than their winning time against BYU a week earlier.

On the boards, junior Angelina Proshak posted a Zone qualifying score on the 1-meter board, scoring a 278.18 to finish fourth, and set a new career high. Sophomore Allie Autry also set a career-high (208.28) on the low board, while Shaifali Goyal and Inessa Toropov set career bests on both the 1- and 3-meter.

Other highlight’s included second-place finishes by sophomore Eva Chung in both the 200 fly (2:06.19) and 200 IM (2:07.68) — both the second-fastest times by an Aggie in those events this season. Chung also owns the top three times by a UC Davis swimmer in the 200 IM thus far this year. Sophomore Kristin Schumann also posted a runner-up finish in the 200 breaststroke with a time of 2:22.07.

The Aggies led wire-to-wire against Cal State East Bay, which was led by Morgan McClure, who won the 200 IM with a time of 2:04.90, and rallied after a 2-3 finish in the 200 medley relay to take the lead over the Wolf Pack thanks to Brown’s win and Angelica Nowack’s third-place finish in the 1000 free.

A 1-2 finish in the 200 free by Nevada put them up, 28-24, and jumpstarted a run of six straight event wins by the Wolf Pack. UC Davis finished with first-place points in three of the final four events, but could not close the gap as Nevada swept the top three spots in both diving events — including a Schaal Aquatics Center record 409.80 on the 3-meter by Sharae Zheng.

Friday’s dual was the final one for the Aggies in the fall as they will travel to the Phill Hansel Invitational in Houston, Texas, for their final competition of the calendar year on Nov. 18-20.

DAVIS, Calif. — The Cal State East Bay swim team raced against strong Division I competition on Friday in a double duel meet against UC Davis and the University of Nevada.

The host Aggies defeated the Pioneers head-to-head, 195-67, while the Wolfpack notched a 163-96 win over East Bay. It was nonetheless a productive day, with several fast times coming from the women in red and black.

Junior Morgan McClure had an outstanding day and notched the only individual event victory of the afternoon for the Pioneers. She crushed the rest of the field in the 200 IM with a time of 2:04.90, which qualifies as an NCAA Division II “B” cut, and currently ranks as the fourth-fastest time in the nation.

McClure missed a second “B” cut by less than two-tenths of a second when she touched the wall in 2:03.73 to take third place in the 200 Backstroke. That time places her sixth in the nation during the first week of competition in November. She also took fifth place in the 100 Backstroke in 57.68, which ranks as the 12th fastest time in Division II. McClure closed out her evening by helping the Pioneers to third place in the 400 Freestyle Relay (3:37.09)

The Pioneers opened the meet with a fifth place showing in the first relay, the 200 Medley (1:49.37). Kayleigh Davidson then paced the Pioneers in the second event and the longest race of the day, finishing third in the 1000 Freestyle in 10:50.00.

Madison Hauanio swam the 16th-fastest 200 Freestyle time in the country to place fourth in the next event. Her time of 1:54.58 barely beat McClure’s from two weeks ago as the best 200 Free time on the team this season. Hauanio also paced the Pioneers with a fourth place finish in the 500 Freestyle (24.48) and a sixth place finish in the 100 Freestyle (53.66), and she led off the 400 Free Relay to finish off the day.

Claire Beaty was East Bay’s top finisher in both the 100 Breaststroke (sixth place) and 200 Breaststroke (fourth place). Her time of 2:26.12 in the 200 Breast is her best of the season and currently ranks 25th in the nation.

Freshman Victoria Zukeran led the way in the 200 Butterfly with a sixth place finish in 2:10.15, a time that places her 17th among Division II swimmers. Zukeran finished just behind sophomore Vivy Hua in the 100 Fly. The pair took fifth and sixth, with their respective times of 58.76 and 58.86 both ranking in the nation’s top 35.

Mariam Lowe notched fifth place in the second distance event of the day, the 500 Freestyle. The senior’s time of 5:16.36 put her just ahead of teammates Davidson and Ryleigh Weight.

The Pioneers will return home for their next meet, a duel against Colorado College on Saturday, Nov. 19 at 1 p.m.
