DAVIS, Calif. - The UC Davis women's swimming and diving team enjoyed an impressive start to the 2011-12 season, posting a 7-2 dual meet record in addition to several top times at the Mizzou Invitational.

The Aggies jumped out to a 3-0 record in dual meets, including a 180-106 win over Pacific in the only home meet thus far. UC Davis also stayed perfect in MPSF competition, taking a 4-0 mark in league play after victories over Pacific, Seattle, Loyola Marymount and San Diego.

After continued improvement in the dual meet schedule, the Aggies took serious strides while at the Mizzou Invitational.

Liliana Alvarez had a pair of NCAA qualifying B standard times in the 100 yard breast (1:00.95) and 200 yard breast (2:12.72). Her time in the 100 yard breast earned the event victory among 46 competitors.

Kayleigh Foley continued to climb closer to her school record times in the 50 and 100 yard free events. She had season best times of 23.10 and 49.62 in the 50 and 100, respectively. Foley also posted a NCAA qualifying B standard time in the 100 yard free.

Even more impressive was the number of entries into the UC Davis record books. The Aggies had a total of 21 top-10 times that were added into the record books. 10 swimmers recorded top-10 times with six swimmers adding multiple records. Katie Edwards and Cara Silvas added top-10 times in four separate events.

UC Davis will be back in action following the holiday break, starting with a Jan. 14 meet at Pacific. The Aggies have three conference dual meets before competing at the MPSF championships  Feb. 15-18.
