LAST TIME OUT: Last weekend, the Rebel women won 12 of 16 events to claim a dual victory over in-state rival UNR for the second straight year by a score of 167-128. Meanwhile, the Scarlet and Gray’s men’s squad returns to the pool for the first time since defeating UC Santa Barbara,150-107, nearly three weeks ago on Jan. 8.

REBELS ATOP THE MOUNTAIN WEST: UNLV currently holds four of the Mountain West’s fastest individual times on the season. Super senior Kate Afanasyeva spearheads that list with her pair of MW-leading marks across the 50 back (24.57) and 100 back (52.98). Additionally, senior Gabby Lizzul sits atop the league’s time chart in the 200 fly (1:58.24) and sophomore Sarah Koopmans ranks first in the 100 IM (56.89).

UNLV WAC LEADERS: The Rebel men, meanwhile, sit atop the WAC rankings in 10 events this season. Headlining that group with two top-ranked marks apiece are junior Panos Bolanos in the 100 back (46.48) and 200 back (1:41.18), junior Cam Castro in the 1000 free (9:21.07) and 1650 free (15:04.59) and freshman Adnan Beji in the 200 breast (1:55.71) and 100 IM (50.25). Senior Sam Willstrop’s 100 breast (52.74), junior Chris Mykkanen’s 500 free (4:19.62), sophomore George Ratiu’s 100 fly (46.90) and freshman Dominik Bujak’s 400 IM (3:46.62) times round out that list.
