LONG BEACH — For the second consecutive day, the UC Davis squad swim its fastest when it matters most.

The Aggies set two more school records on Thursday, and achieved four NCAA “B” Consideration Standard times to remain in first place after an outstanding second day of competition at the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Swimming and Diving Championships at the Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool.

UCD’s Linda Hermann and Heidi Kucera went  1-2 in the 200 individual medley, while Kayleigh Foley and Ashley Chandler repeated the feat in the 50 freestyle to help the Aggies maintain a 67-point lead over UC Santa Barbara.

UCD has 294 points, while the Gauchos have 227. Cal Poly is third with 200 points.

Hermann claimed the 200 IM in 1:59.86 and Kucera clocked in at 1:59.97 as both Aggies hit B Standard times.

Foley’s winning time of 22.58 in the 50 free set a UCD record and was also an NCAA B time. She topped the previous mark of 22.90 set last year by Chandler, who took second on Thursday with a B Standard time of her own.

The 400 medley relay squad of Chandler, Liliana Alvarez, Foley and Hermann set a UCD record with an NCAA B time of 3:39.48.

In the 500 free, all three Aggie competitors — Bridget Bugbee, Grace Benefield and Sarah Winters — finished in the top eight of the event. UCD’s Sabrina Cochrane and Jenah Dawson also earned top-10 finishes in the 200 IM.

In 1-meter diving, Jennifer Meyer finished fourth for the Aggies with a 238.70, while Erica Stricker was seventh (213.65).

The competition continues Friday and Saturday.
