DAVIS, Calif. -  UC Davis led Saturday's home meet at the Schaal Aquatic Center from start-to-finish to defeat the visiting Pacific Tigers 176.5-106.5. With the win, the Aggies are now 5-2 this season.

By winning the first nine straight events against the Tigers, UC Davis was able to create a sizable advantage that only grew as the afternoon progressed. Led by sophomore Hilary Hunt and junior Haley Porter with two, six different Aggies won their individual races to help seal the victory.

Hunt posted top times in the 100-yard (58.00) and 200-yard (2:04.75) backstroke events, Porter captured the 50- and 100-yard freestyles with times of 24.41 and 53.44 respectively.

Other event-winners include junior Liliana Alvarez who captured the 100-yard breaststroke with a time of 1:05.28, sophomore Marilyn Carey who clocked a 10:26.85 in the 1000-yard free, junior Megan Leung who posted a 2:06.08 in the 200-yard butterfly and junior Samantha Shellem who swam the 200-yard free in 1:52.39.

Of the first nine events contested, UC Davis took the top-three spots in three of those races to earn the maximum number of points allowed.

Rounding out the top three in the 200 free were senior Bridget Bugbee (1:55.08) and junior Katie Edwards (1:55.21); sophomore Lauren Damian (59.02) and junior Sabrina Cochrane (59.58) posted the next-fastest times in the 100 back; junior Karly Troup (2:07.13) and sophomore Sam Rados (2:07.91) finished second and third in the 200 fly; Rados (2:09.81) and sophomore Sarah Luibel (2:11.60) earned the final sweep for the Aggies in the 200 back.



While their swimming teammates were squaring-off against the Tigers, Aggie divers were participating in the final day of competition at the Bruin Diving Invitational from the Spieker Aquatics Center in Los Angeles. Since UC Davis could not compete with a split squad Saturday afternoon, the diving teams recorded their scores at Schaal Aquatics Center earlier in the week.

Freshman Lucy Lafranchise earned 18 points for the Aggies' cause vs. Pacific by earning the top scores in both the 1-meter and 3-meter diving events. Posting a 253.35 in the 1-meter, Lafranchise set a new season-high mark by posting a 272.05 in 3-meter competition, a score that is now the fourth highest recorded by an Aggie diver in the program's history.

In both the 1- and 3-meter diving events, freshmen Hanna Tears (251.33/228.50) and Audrey DeNeffe (245.93/225.00) finished second and third.

Day two from the Bruin Diving Invitational saw four Aggies compete on the 1-meter board; sophomore Shannon Stewart led all Aggies by finishing 35th with a score of 199.60. Tears (191.95) and Lafranchise (191.10) took 41st and 42nd place, with junior Lauren Jesse (172.75) finishing her day in 48th place amongst a field of divers from some of the top swimming and diving programs in the country.

UC Davis swimming and diving will face CSU Bakersfield in the second of consecutive home meets on Saturday, Jan. 19, at the Schaal Aquatics Center. The graduating class of 2013 will be honored that afternoon, that dual against the Roadrunners is the final home event of the season for the Aggies.
