COLUMBIA, Mo. — UC Davis’ 400-yard medley relay team of Hilary Hunt, Liliana Alvarez, Hilvy Cheung and Haley Porter set a school record in the event while Cheung met the NCAA B standard in the 100 butterfly to highlight the Aggie swimmers’ first day at the sixth annual Mizzou Invitational in Columbia, Mo., on Thursday.

Entering Day 2, UCD was in fourth place as a team with 161.5 points.

Hunt, Alvarez, Cheung and Porter finished second in the 400 medley relay with a time of 3:38.47, breaking the previous school mark of 3:39.48.

Earlier Thursday, Cheung posted the Aggies’ best individual finish of the day in the 100 fly, finishing fourth with a time of 54.35 to best the B standard for the NCAA Championships. Cheung’s mark was a career best and just .15 seconds off the school record of 54.20 set by Yuka Kobayashi in 2006.

UCD posted five other top-10 finishes on the day, led by the 200 free relay squad of Shellem, Porter, Katie Edwards and Hunt that took fifth with a season-low time of 1:33.39. Shellem then followed that up with a sixth-place finish in the 500 free, touching in a season-low 4:54.83.

In addition, Porter won the B final to take ninth in the 50 free (23.46); the Aggies’ second squad in the 400 medley relay — Lauren Damian, Edwards, Elise Roberts and Shellem — finished ninth (3:48.35); and a quartet of Sabrina Cochrane, DHS graduate Marrisa LaFreniere, Kirsten Brand and Hailey Ferko took 10th in the 200 free relay (1:35.59).

Competing unattached, volunteer assistant Scott Weltz — a 2012 Olympian and former UCD star — also swam in two events on Thursday, posting an exhibition time of 50.40 in the 100 fly and finishing 17th in the 200 individual medley (1:47.97).

He has four events remaining on the weekend, the 100 backstroke, 200 fly and the 100 and 200 breaststroke.
