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.
