From page B2 | January 24, 2014 |

UC Davis freshman Hilvy Cheung was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation/Turbo Female Athlete of the Week on Wednesday after her perfect weekend helped the Aggie women’s swim team to a pair of dual meet wins over Pacific and CSU Bakersfield.

It is the first career award for Cheung, who becomes the second UCD swimmer honored by the conference this season, joining Liliana Alvarez (Nov. 27).

After setting a pair of Schaal Aquatics Center records in the first dual of the season against Fresno State, Cheung picked up right where she left off last weekend on the road against the Tigers and Roadrunners, going a perfect 8-for-8 in the two meets, bringing home six individual wins and a pair of relay victories.

She opened the weekend with three individual titles at Pacific, winning the 100 butterfly (55.90), the 200 fly (2:00.93) and the 200 individual medley (2:05.41), while also swimming the third leg of the Aggies’ winning 200 medley relay squad (1:45.90).

Cheung followed that up 24 hours later with three more individual wins against Bakersfield, claiming the top spot in the 100 backstroke (57.01), and the 100 (55.75) and 200 fly (2:07.05) events, along with another win in the 200 medley relay (1:45.56).

The performances helped UCD remain undefeated (7-0) in dual meets as it heads into final weekend of the regular season. The Aggies host UC Santa Barbara on Friday at 1 p.m., before welcoming Loyola Marymount on Sunday at 10 a.m.
