DAVIS, Calif. -- UC Davis senior Hilary Hunt and freshman Courtney Schultz posted a pair of wins on the day and the Aggies had the fastest times in all 14 swimming events, propelling the home team to a, 149-140, Mountain Pacific Sports Federation victory over visiting BYU on Saturday morning at the Schaal Aquatics Center.

Hunt and Schultz led UC Davis with 18 points apiece as the Aggies exhibitioned all their swimmers in the final four events of the day (500 free, 100 fly, 400 IM, and 200 free relay) after sprinting out to an early lead en route to the win. Hunt posted wins in both backstroke distances, touching in a time of 57.16 in the 100 and 2:04.25 in the 200, while Schultz, won back-to-back events, claiming the 50 free in a time of 24.28 and the 100 free in a time of 52.79 after the break.

Both were also members of the fastest 200 free relay squad, joining teammates Hilvy Cheung and Brittany Rojo, which closed out the meet with a Schaal Aquatics Center record of 1:36.57 -- besting the previous mark held by the Washington State team of MacLeod, Van Horne, Peterson, and McCleave, in 2006 by four-tenths of a second.

After the foursome of Hunt, Hailey Ferko, Cheung, and Schultz, opened the meet with a win in the 200 medley relay (1:46.07), Marissa Brown took home the Aggies' first individual win with a time of 10:18.39 in the 1000 free. She also posted the fastest time in the 500 free on the day of 5:01.35.

Shellem, who would go on to post the fastest time of the day in the 400 IM with a season-best time of 4:28.58 with the meet in hand, followed Brown with a win in the 200 free, matching her season-best with a time of 1:52.25. The senior also set a season best with a time of 2:04.63 to finish second behind Hunt in the 200 back.

Ferko won the 100 breast stroke in a time of 1:06.29, while Cheung followed with a win in the 200 fly with a time of 2:03.48. Cheung also had the fastest time of the day in the 100 fly (56.91) -- her second-fastest time of the season in that event.

Sophomore Elise Roberts added a victory in the 200 breast with a season-best time of 2:22.08, and set a season-best time of 4:30.56 in the 400 IM -- the second-fastest time of the day behind Shellem.

Other standouts included Caroline Weston's time of 2:25.49 in the 200 breast stroke, which was a season high, while Kirsten Brand added a season-best time in the 50 free, touching in 24.60 to finish second. Sara Ramos and Rojo added season-best times in the 100 fly, touching in 58.44 and 58.23, respectively, that would have placed them in the top five.

Junior Lucy Lafranchise scored a 253.43 to win the 1-meter diving event, leading a 1-2-3 finish for the Aggies. Sophomore Serena Yee (252.98) and Audrey DeNeffe (245.33) followed with podium finishes. BYU's Mackenzie Rands won the 3-meter event with a score of 294.00, pacing a 1-2-3 Cougars finish in that event.

The UC Davis divers are the next to return to the pool, heading to Tucson, Arizona, next weekend to compete in the three-day Wildcat Diving Invitational beginning on Friday (Nov. 21) and running through the weekend. The swimming team next competes on Dec. 4-6, heading to Austin, Texas, to participate in the Texas Hall of Fame Invitational.
