Honorable Mention

Sophomore Liliana Alvarez has already become a key part of the UC Davis swimming and diving team in just two years with the program.

The San Anselmo, Calif. native qualified for the NCAA Championships for the second year in a row this season, finishing her year with a 36th place finish in the 100-yard breaststroke.

Alvarez also took first in the 100 breast at the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Finals last month.

The sophomore hit season best times of 1:00.71 in the 100 breast and 2:12.72 in the 200 breast at the Mizzou Invitational in December.

Alvarez was also named last season’s MPSF Freshman of the Year and was given Mid-Major All American honors by CollegeSwimming.com.

With two more years of collegiate swimming still ahead of her, UC Davis fans can expect Alvarez to continue providing the team with strong performances.
