SAN JOSE, Calif. - Sophomore Hannah Watanabe won three individual events and helped lead UC Davis to a victory in the 200 medley relay as the Aggies split their matchups in a double-dual collegiate swim meet at San Jose State Saturday. UC Davis beat former Pacific Collegiate Swimming Conference foe UC Santa Cruz by a 235-67 final, and lost to the host Spartans by a score of 175-124.

The Aggie men also were in action at the meet, competing in a neutral-site dual with the Banana Slugs. However, no results were released.

Watanabe captured the 100-yard butterfly at 57.94, the 200 fly at 2:06.95 and the 200 individual medley at 2:11.16 to highlight UC Davis' action. Among those three events and her role in the winning relay, Watanabe accounted 38 points in the meet.

Junior Renee Dyer also enjoyed strong performances in the freestyle sprints. Her second-place time of 52.84 in the 100 free is the fastest by any Aggie since Anna Pettis unloaded a school-record 51.28 at the NCAA Championships in 1983. She also swam a 24.78 in the 50 free, 8th in school history.

Dyer also swam the freestyle portion of the winning 200 medley relay, helping UC Davis record a 1:49.63 to lead off the day's action.

Save for an alumni meet on October 23, this is the last meet for either the Aggie men or women until a home dual with Seattle University on October 28.
