Feb. 21, 2018

DAVIS, Calif. — Ten members of the UC Davis women’s swimming and diving team earned a combined 15 all-conference awards on Wednesday as the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation announced its all conference first- and second-teams.

The top three finishers in each individual event, plus the winning relay team, garnered first-team honors, while individual places 4-8 and the second- and third-place relay squads earned second-team honors.

Junior Solie Laughlin led the Aggies with three all-conference awards, after defending titles in the 400 IM with an NCAA “B” time of 4:11.98, the 100 back with an NCAA “B” standard time of 53.78, and the 200 back with an NCAA “B” cut time of 1:55.22. Fellow junior Kristin Schumann earned first-team honors in the 200 breaststroke after posting her first NCAA “B” standard time of the season at 2:14.91, in addition to securing second-team honors in the 100 breaststroke. Other first-team honorees included Jamie Pincin in the 100 free, who set a season-best time of 50.41 to finish third in the finals, and Nina Gonzalez in the 200 fly (2:01.18), who set a season-best time of 2:00.57 in the prelims.

Junior Eva Chung picked up second-team honors in the 200 IM and 200 fly, while Senior Angelina Proshak led the divers with second-team nods in both the one-meter and platform events. Proshak’s platform score of 211.45 earned her a fifth-place finish in the finals and improved her standings in the UC Davis top 10 records list from third to second overall. Also joining Proshak with second-team honors in the one-meter program was junior Jessica Fernandez

Three UC Davis newcomers earned their first career honors from the league including freshman diver Katie Truong (3-meter, 2nd Team), freshman Kyla Leacox (200 breaststroke, 2nd Team), and junior transfer Nina Gonzalez (200 fly, 1st Team).
