SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The UC Davis women's swimming and diving team won 10 of the 16 events on the afternoon en route to a double dual sweep of host San Diego and Oregon State, defeating the Toreros, 173.50-123.50, and handing the Beavers a, 176-120, defeat on Saturday at the USD Sports Center Pool.

The Aggies (3-0) remained unbeaten on the year as Hilary Hunt, Liliana Alvarez, and Hilvy Cheung each posted a pair of victories. Hunt posted a season-best in the 100 backstroke with a time of 57.43 (the first sub-one minute time in the event by a UC Davis swimmer this season) while Alvarez's time of 2:19.56 in the 200 breaststroke was also a season-low, topping her previous best by .15 of a second.

Sophomore Lucy Lafranchise set a career-high in the 1-meter with a score of 271.27 to claim the Aggies' first win of the day and was followed by the 200 IM relay squads of Hunt, Alvarez, Cheung, and Haley Porter along with quartet of Lauren Damian, Maya Sprinsock, Marrisa LaFreniere, and Sabrina Cochrane, who finished 1-2 in the event with times of 1:46.91 and 1:49.38, respectively.

Hunt then won her first event of the afternoon in the 100 back, later completing the double in the 200 back with a time of 2:04.58. Alvarez followed with a win in the 100 breaststroke, touching in a time of 1:04.76 and was followed by Cheung with a win in the 200 fly, touching in a time of 2:03.72 to edge San Diego's Keenan Lineback by two-tenths.


 

 

Both would later complete the double with Alvarez winning in the 200 breaststroke in her season-best time while Cheung claimed victory in the 100 fly with a time of 56.97 -- her third-fastest of the year.

Senior Haley Porter added to the win total with a win in the 50 free (24.72) while sophomore Hanna Tears completed the Aggies sweep of the diving events with a win on the high board with a score of 260.17.

UC Davis is back in action next weekend, heading east to Reno, Nev., for a dual meet against Nevada at 2 p.m. at Lombardi Pool.
