STOCKTON, Calif. - Junior Renee Dyer's victory in the 200-yard freestyle highlighted a solid day for the UC Davis women as both Aggie men's and women's swimming teams competed in the second day of the Pacific Invitational Saturday. Dyer also added a second-place showing in the 100 free and a fifth-place performance in the 100 breast.

On the men's side, freshman Russell Taylor enjoyed his team's top performances. Taylor placed seventh in the 100 fly at 54.72 then took fifth in the 200 breast with a season-best time of 2:11.64.

Dyer recorded a season-best 1:55.63 in the 200 free, eighth-fastest in UC Davis history. She led three other Aggies among the top six as Rachelle Compton took third at 1:57.50, Jill Olson was fourth at 1:57.79 and Julie Tracy placed sixth with a 1:59.14 clocking.

Freshman Jennifer Ginsberg captured second place in the 100 back with a 59.42 mark, fourth in school history. She swam more than a second faster than Pacific's Alison Shasky, who took third with a 1:00.68.

In all, the UC Davis women had 14 finishes among the top five. The trio of Dyer, Olson and Ginsberg finished in a 2-3-5 group in the 100 free. Additionally, the 200 medley relay posted a runner-up finish to Pacific and the 400 free relay team took third behind the Washington State and Pacific squads.

Besides Taylor in the 200 breast, fellow freshman Adam Pluemer had the Aggie men's other top-five performance. He posted a time of 2:01.07 to place fifth in the 200 back, eclipsing teammate Toki Burke's sixth-place time of 2:05.67.

Other Aggie men's highlights including Nik Kemp's 1:45.29 in the 200 free, good for seventh place and the fastest by any UC Davis swimmer this season.

 

 

The Aggie men's and women's teams competed only in the Saturday portion of the two-day meet. Both squads prepare for their two biggest meets of the fall season, the Big West Shootout at UC Irvine on November 5-6, then the Speedo Cup in Long Beach from November 18-20.
