Sophomore Liliana Alvarez will represent UC Davis at the NCAA Division I Swimming and Diving Championships this week in Auburn, Ala.

The San Aselmo, Calif. native qualified to compete in the 100-yard breaststroke by posting solid times in the event throughout the season, including a season best of 1:00.71 at the Mizzou Invitational Dec. 12. Alvarez also took the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championship in the 100-yard breaststroke with a time of 1:00.80 at the conference championship meet in February.

She will also compete in the 200 yard breaststroke for which she recorded a season best of 2:12.74.

This is the second time Alvarez has made it to the NCAA Championships in her short career. Last season she finished 23rd in the 100-yard breaststroke and 45th in the 200-yard breaststroke.

While the meet will begin Thursday, Alvarez will not compete until the 100-yard breaststroke trials Friday afternoon.
