For the first time in school history, the UC Davis women’s swimming and diving team has run all the way through its dual meet season without a loss.

The benchmark was solidified on Sunday, when a pair of wins by senior Maya Sprinsock helped the Aggies defeat Loyola Marymount, 178-116, at the Schaal Aquatics Center.

Now at 9-0, the UCD swimmers and divers prepare for the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championships, set for Feb. 19-22. The swimmers will head to East Los Angeles College in Monterey Park, while the divers compete at the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center in Pasadena.

Sprinsock touched the wall in 1:55.83 to post her first win of the day in the 200 freestyle, then followed that up with a 500 free victory in 5:12.52.

Freshman Hilvy Cheung took first in the 100 backstroke (57.86), highlighting a 1-2-3 Aggie sweep by finishing just in front of teammates Lauren Damian (59.69) and Kirsten Brand (1:00.35).

In diving, where UCD was unopposed, sophomore Audrey DeNeffe led the way on the 1-meter with a season-best score of 264.15, while sophomore Hanna Tears (284.22) took home the 3-meter title.

The Aggies opened the meet with Hilary Hunt, Liliana Alvarez, Cheung and Haley Porter teaming up to win the 200 medley in 1:45.77, nearly two seconds better than the Lions’ A squad. Hunt also was the unofficial winner in the 50 free with her exhibition time of 24.12, just .06 better than winner Kjirsten Magnuson’s time of 24.18 for LMU.

Other UCD event winners included Porter in the 100 free (52.02), Alvarez in the 200 breaststroke (2:19.86) and Sabrina Cochrane in the 200 individual medley (2:07.97). For Alvarez, it was her fifth consecutive dual-meet win in the 200 breast, dating back to the Aggie victory over Fresno State on Jan. 11.

UCD men’s tennis

Freshman James Wade posted a straight-set victory at the No. 4 singles position on Saturday, but host Pacific swept the remaining matches to clinch a 6-1 win over the Aggies in a nonconference matchup at the Hal Nelson Tennis Courts in Stockton.

Wade improved to 2-0 in dual-match play this season, moving up one spot in the lineup to defeat Ben Mirkin, 6-4, 6-4. It was the third consecutive straight-set victory for the UCD rookie dating back to the fall season, and he improved to 11-4 overall and 7-3 in his last 10.

With Saturday’s win, Wade moved into a tie for the team lead in singles victories with sophomore teammate Brett Bacharach, who battled Tigers’ No. 5 Miguel Diaz for three sets before falling, 1-6, 7-6, 6-4.

Pacific opened the day by claiming the doubles point for the early 1-0 lead, taking victories at the No. 1 and No. 3 positions. The Tigers then got four of their the five singles wins in straight sets.

The Aggies kick off their home schedule next weekend, welcoming Bay Area rival San Francisco to the Marya Welch Tennis Center on Saturday (1 p.m.) to open a stretch of six straight home matches.

Junior Blue Devils clinic

Come get ready for the Super Bowl and learn about the Davis Junior Blue Devils when the organization present a free, noncontact football and cheer clinic on Saturday at Brown Stadium on the Davis High campus.

The event, which is open to football players and cheerleaders ages 6 to 14, runs from 10 a.m. to noon with registration beginning at 9:30 a.m.
