News in Brief: UC Davis wins third MPSF Championship in four years

On Feb. 22, the UC Davis swimming and diving team won the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) Championship at East Los Angeles College in Monterey Park, Calif. — the team’s third championship in four years.

The Aggies finished first in a field of eight schools with 712.5 points, 74.5 more than second-place UC Santa Barbara.

Senior Liliana Alvarez won her second career individual MPSF title, winning the 200-meter breaststroke in a pool-record 2:12:84. She previously won the 100-meter breaststroke in last year’s meet.

Freshman Hilvy Cheung was named MPSF Freshman of the Year, and she finished second in the 200-meter fly with a time of 1:56:14. Senior Haley Porter also earned a second place finish in the 100-meter free with a time of 50:02 — the third fastest 100-meter free swim in UC Davis history.
