Kucera and Alvarez pace Aggies at Texas Invitational

By
December 4, 2010 |

\n

AUSTIN, Texas — Heidi Kucera and Liliana Alvarez recorded NCAA “B” Consideration Standard times in the breaststroke for the second straight day to help the UC Davis women\’s swim team finish sixth at the Texas Swimming and Diving Hall of Fame Invitational at the Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swim Center on Saturday.

\n

After taking sixth and eighth and hitting NCAA consideration times in the 100 breast on Friday, Kucera and Alvarez swam B standard times again during the 200 breast prelims on Saturday. Kucera clocked in with a time of 2:14.01, while Alvarez had a season-best time of 2:14.21. Both advanced to the event finals where Kucera finished third (2:11.66) and Alvarez placed eighth overall.

\n

On the weekend, Kucera earned six NCAA B Consideration Standard times — and finished in the top 10 of three different races — while Alvarez clocked four NCAA B times.

\n

“Overall, this has been a really good meet for the Aggies,” said head coach Barbara Jahn. “(Now) we\’ll gear back up in yardage and get ready for conference.”

\n

The Aggies also earned a top-10 finish on Saturday from Grace Benefield in the 1,650 freestyle

\n

as she recorded a season- and team-best time of 17:12.57.

\n

Linda Hermann finished in the top 20 in the 200 backstroke (2:03.29), taking 13th place overall. She recorded a season- and team-best time of 2:02.55 in the event prelims.

\n

In the 100 free, Kayleigh Foley finished 16th overall with a time of 51.01 after advancing via a

\n

season- and team-best time of 50.65 in the event prelims. Sabrina Cochrane and Samantha Capozzo finished 29th and 30th, respectively, with Cochrane recording a time of 52.17 and Capozzo clocking in a lifetime-best time of 52.30.

\n

Jenah Dawson was UCD\’s top finisher in the 200 butterfly, placing 20th in 2:07.37.

\n

On Friday, some other Aggies got into the mix as Morgan Lee finished 18th in the 100 breast. Her time of 1:04.32 in the 100 breast was a season best.

\n

Julie Peri beat her previous best in the 100 breast prelims, clocking in at 1:04.81, then finished 21st in the finals.

\n

UCD is back to competition on Jan. 15, hosting Pacific in a dual meet at Schaal Aquatics Center at 1 p.m.
