DAVIS, Calif. - Senior diver Serena Yee won both diving events, including a school-record 301.05 on the three-meter board, while Marissa Brown, Kristin Schumann and Eva Chung each won two events to lead UC Davis to a 182-118 win over Pacific in a collegiate women's swimming & diving dual meet at Schaal Aquatics Center Saturday.


Yee becomes the first Aggie to eclipse the 300-point barrier on either board in a dual meet. She surpassed the previous record of 296.85, set by former teammate Audrey DeNeffe in a 2015 dual against Nevada. Additionally, Yee's winning 287.55 on the low board puts her second in school history behind only former teammate Lucy Lafranchise, who scored a 291.30 last season.


Additionally, Yee was one of seven seniors honored during the meet's Senior Day ceremonies, along with Brown, Kirsten Brand, Hilvy Cheung, Marrisa LaFreniere, Kaitlin Leung and Elise Roberts.


Pacific actually took a significant lead at the start of the meet, winning the 200 medley relay with a time of one minute, 45.16 seconds. Brown's 10:21.38 claimed the 1,000 meters but the Tigers took the second through fourth places in that event. Pacific then went 1-2 in the 200 freestyle, with Taylor Hosmer leading the pack at 1:53.34.


However, UC Davis claimed the next three events. Sophomore Solie Laughlin won the 100-yard backstroke at 57.31, Schumann led a 1-2-3 trifecta in the 100 breaststroke at 1:05.08, then Chung claimed the 200 butterfly with her 2:06.24 time.


Brown also won the 500 freestyle by better than three full seconds with her 5:04.14. Schumann headed another 1-2-3 UC Davis sweep with her 2:19.11 in the 200 breast, while Chung edged Pacific's Whitney Jorgensen in the 200 individual medley. Chung touched in 2:06.37, just seven hundredths before Jorgensen's 2:06.44.


Sophomore Iris Brand picked off another event win for the Aggies with her 2:05.29.


Yee's exploits on the boards led a strong overall day by diving coach Phil Tonne's crew. Junior Shaifali Goyal hit personal records on both 3-meter (276.97) and 1-meter (256.80), as did sophomore Inessa Toropov (243.75 and 249.07, respectively). Junior Jessica Fernandez established a new career best with her second-place 260.25 on the low board, while Ani Vemury hit a PR witth a 235.12 on the high board.


Saturday's meet closes out the regular season for UC Davis, which returns to action to defend its Mountain Pacific Sports Federation team title on February 15-18.
