Despite taking more than a month and a half off from competition, the UC Davis women’s swimming team wasn’t the least bit rusty on Saturday.

Freshman Hilvy Cheung set pool records in both butterfly events and was one of five double event-winners for the Aggies, who defeated Fresno State, 140-111, in a dual meet at Schaal Aquatics Center on Saturday.

With the win, UCD remained undefeated at 5-0 in dual meets this year.

Cheung captured the 200-yard fly with a Schaal-record time of two minutes, 2.08 seconds, touching the wall eight seconds sooner than runner-up Lindsay Ruiz of the Bulldogs. Cheung completed her day with a 55.18 in the 100 fly, another stadium benchmark.

UCD seniors Haley Porter (50 and 100 freestyle), Liliana Alvarez (100 and 200 breaststroke) and Sabrina Cochrane (200 free and 200 individual medley), along with sophomore Marissa Brand (500 and 1,000 free), also won two events each.

Alvarez beat the field by better than six seconds with her 2:19.12 in the 200 breast, her fourth straight year winning the event in this dual series, while Cochrane anchored the Aggies’ 200 medley relay team to a winning 1:45.74 to start the day.

UCD, which exhibitioned its swimmers after the 200 breast, finished 1-2-3 in three events: the 100 breast, the 50 free and the 100 backstroke, where Hilary Hunt’s 57.15 won the race.

The dual season continues with road meets at Pacific (swimmers only) and Bakersfield (swimmers and divers) next Saturday and Sunday.
