SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - Freshman Nik Kemp won three events while divers Brad Kern and Krysta Chaldekas each picked up a pair of victories to lead the UC Davis men's and women's swimming and diving teams to respective wins over Cal Poly Monday. The Aggie men prevailed by a 188.5-115.5 final while the women topped the Mustangs by a 148-97 score.

The UC Davis women improve their dual record to 13-4. The men, who pick up their first dual win since the Big West Shootout in November, move to 4-7 on the year.

Kemp captured the men's 200-yard freestyle at 1:43.65, added a victory in the 100 free at 47.58, then won the 500 free with a 4:44.29 mark. His times in the 100 and 500 free races missed his previous season bests by a combined tenth of a second.

Kern won the men's 1-meter diving competition with a 213.00 total, then led a 1-2-3 Aggie sweep on the 3-meter board, scoring 230.48. Chaldekas scored victories on both boards in the women's dual, posting marks of 210.15 and 220.83 on the low and high boards, respectively.

The UC Davis women swam in exhibition after Hannah Watanabe's win in the 100 freestyle, having clinched the dual win. The men followed suit after Kemp's third victory in the 500 free.

Other women's highlights included freshman Bergen Beck, who won the 1,650 freestyle with a season-best time of 17:41.27; and freshman Ashley Cayford, who took a victory in the 50 free with a season-best 24.61. Cayford won the sprint by almost a full second. Another freshman, Jessica Lee, had the meet's fastest 100 breaststroke, posting a PR of 1:06.40. She now ranks third in school history in that event.

 

 

On the men's side, freshman Russell Taylor improved on his season-best marks in each of the 100 butterfly and the 100 breaststroke. He recorded a 51.39 in the fly then added a 58.80 in the 100 breast. Jason Kim made his collegiate debut in the 400 individual medley, placing first with a 4:14.14 time.

Both UC Davis teams return home for duals against Cal St. Bakersfield on January 22.
