Sports briefs: UCD’s Shellem speeds to a pair of record swims

From page B8 | February 22, 2013 |

MONTEREY PARK — Junior Samantha Shellem set school and meet records in the 500-yard freestyle, and led off the UC Davis 200 free relay squad that posted another school mark as the Aggie women stayed in first place after the second day of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation swimming championships at East L.A. College on Thursday.

Shellem finished the 500 free in four minutes, 45.60 seconds in breaking her own benchmark by three seconds. She also surpassed the B qualifying standard for the NCAA Championships.

That race came just after the 200 free relay, which saw Shellem, Katie Edwards, Haley Porter and Hilary Hunt take third place in 1:32.02 — 0.87 seconds faster than the four-year-old UCD mark of 1:33.29. Furthermore, Shellem’s leadoff split of 23.49 moved her into the school’s all-time 50 free leaderboard.

The 500 free was a big race for the Aggies in the team standings as freshman Marissa Brown finished second (4:50.65) — moving up to second in UCD history — and Bridget Bugbee placed fifth (4:53.54). The threesome of Shellem, Brown and Bugbee picked up 51 points in that race, while the Aggies added another seven points from Grace Benefield and Maya Sprinsock in the consolation final.

In action at the U.S. Air Force Academy, UCD’s Lucy Lafranchise scored 247.85 in her preliminary round to advance to the final of the 1-meter diving competition. Lafranchise placed eighth in the event at 199.15 while fellow freshman Audrey DeNeffe improved from 205.10 in the prelim to 227.65 in the consolation.

Between the two sites, the Aggies finished the day in first place with 212 points, just ahead of UC Santa Barbara (204) and Hawaii (191).

UCD water polo

Senior Carmen Eggert was named the Big West Conference Player of the Week in a Wednesday announcement, marking the fifth time she has won the award in her Aggie career.

Eggert led UCD in goals (10), steals (seven), drawn exclusions (six) and field blocks (four) at the Davis Challenge tournament last weekend, helping the Aggies to four straight wins, including two over Top 20 foes. She scored hat tricks in each end of Saturday’s doubleheader and added a pair of goals and heavy defensive contributions (four steals, two field blocks) in a win over Pacific.

Eggert, who prepped at Marin Catholic in San Rafael, is a two-time honorable mention All-American.
