UCD roundup: Records fall as Aggies are speedy at Mizzou Invitational

From page B8 | November 24, 2013 |

COLUMBIA, Mo. — Three UC Davis swimmers — freshman Hilvy Cheung in the 200 butterfly, Hilary Hunt in the 200 backstroke and Audrey DeNeffe in platform diving — each set school records and three Aggies met NCAA B standards on Saturday, helping the team finish fourth at the Mizzou Invitational.

Cheung’s school-record time of 1:57.60 also broke the meet mark and met the B standard for the NCAA Championships.

Hunt’s UCD benchmark was her second in two days, this time recording a 1:57.96 in the 200 back prelims that also was good enough for the NCAA B cut. She then placed sixth in the finals.

DeNeffe finished eighth on the platform with a score of 181.00, but her prelim score of 210.65 broke her own school record in the event.

Aggie senior Liliana Alvarez had a good day of her own, swimming a 2:13.22 in the 200 breaststroke to finish fifth and hit a B standard.

Four more UCD individuals and the 400 freestyle relay squad also posted top-10 finishes on the day, including three Aggies in the 1,650 free. Lexy Troup was eighth in that event (16:49.64) with teammates Kirsten Brand in ninth and Marissa Brown in 10th.

Haley Porter finished eighth in the 100 free (50:56), then teamed with Katie Edwards, Samantha Shellem and Hunt to take fourth in the 400 free relay.

In addition, UCD volunteer assistant coach Scott Weltz, a 2012 Olympian, won the B Final in the 200 breast (1:57.67) to place ninth overall, while posting an exhibition time of 1:53.65 in the 200 fly.

Weltz also won the B final of the 100 breaststroke on Friday, to take ninth in 54.74.

That same day, Hunt set a school record in the 100 back and was one of three Aggies to post NCAA B standards.

Hunt touched the wall in a time of 53.68 in prelims to set the new mark and hit the B standard, then took third in the finals with a 54.18.

UCD’s other two B times came in the 100 breaststroke prelims, where Alvarez touched in a time of 1:00.49 to finish second in her heat, while Edwards came home in 1:02.32. The two Aggies went on to the finals, with Alvarez taking fourth and Edwards finishing eighth.

Despite a team-leading 13 kills from senior opposite Devon Damelio, the Aggies were unable to hold off the heavy hitting of 12th-ranked Hawaii and fell in three sets, 25-19, 25-17, 25-19, on Friday night at the Stan Sheriff Center in Hawaii.

The Rainbow Wahine (21-4, 10-3 Big West Conference) got revenge for a previous upset by the Aggies (14-14, 6-9) that had knocked UH out of the Top 10.

Damelio remained the only UCD player in double-figures on offense, tallying her 13 kills on 32 swings. Juniors Victoria Lee and Valerie Brain had seven kills and three blocks each, with Lee boosting her conference-leading hitting average with a .500 night. Junior libero Megan Lancaster, senior setter Lindsay Dowd and freshman outside hitter Allie Wegener each had seven digs to pace the Aggies on floor defense.

The Aggies now have lost three straight matches by 3-0 scores, and 12 straight sets dating back to the five-set heartbreaker at UC Irvine on Nov. 9.

UCD closes its 2013 season against Cal State Northridge on Saturday (7 p.m.) at home.
