DAVIS, Calif. - Junior Renee Dyer hit a qualifying mark for the American Short Course Championships in the 100-yard butterfly and improved her standing in the school's all-time leaderboard in the 50 free to highlight UC Davis action in a rainy Aggie Open swimming meet at Schaal Aquatics Center Saturday.

Dyer posting a winning time of 59.70 seconds in the 100 fly, beating the standard for the national meet by just .09. She later won the 50 free in 23.96, improving on her previous Aggie best of 24.03 and moving her ahead of Leigh Gaskin into second place in UC Davis annals.

Freshman Jennifer Ginsberg also hit a qualifying mark for nationals with her second-place time of 25.15 in the 50 free. Ginsberg, who has already qualified for the Texas meet in two other events, just clipped the 25.19-second standard in the event.

On the men's side, freshman Russell Taylor won the 100 breast at 59.65, breaking the one-minute barrier for the third time this season. He subsequently captured the 100 fly at 52.28, improving on his previous best by exactly one second.

Kyle Payne also highlighted the men's action, winning the 200 breast with a season-best time of 2:11.29.

Jill Olson won a pair of events for the Aggie women, touching in 52.99 to capture the 100 free and 2:12.22 to claim the 200 back. Both marks are season bests for the UC Davis freshman. Deborah Seiler was another double-winner, capturing the 200 free at 2:00.30 and the 200 individual medley at 2:18.75.

This was the first action for the UC Davis men since the Pacific Swimming Winter Championships on December 21, and the first for the Aggie women since the Speedo Cup in November. Both teams return to action on January 15 for a double dual at UC Santa Barbara with the University of San Diego.
