Final Stats

Irvine, Calif. - The University of Utah men's and women's swimming and diving team faced UC Irvine on Friday. The Ute men won by a score of 161-81, winning 11 of 13 events to remaining unbeaten this season. The Utah women fell to UC Irvine 142-81. The loss marks the first of the season for the Utes.

On the men's side, Utah had three different triple event winners, improving its record to 4-0 (1-0 MWC). Cody Rempfer, Evan Castro and Jonathan Larsen, each won three events in a dominating Ute performance. "We swam well as a team and this win should set us up for not only San Diego, but it will be a good way to head into the conference schedule," comments Head Coach Michael Litzinger.

The Ute women got off to a slow start in the meet and could not fight their way back as they eventually fell to the Anteaters. Kristen Kaiser won the 200 free, while Amy Barefield grabbed a victory in the 100 free. "We ran into a team that swam its best times of the year and beat us. The girls got in a hole early but did a great job in the second half of the meet," adds Litzinger. Utah falls to 4-1 (2-0 MWC).

The Utes now travel to UC San Diego, for a meet on Saturday, Jan. 10, at 11:00 a.m. (PT).
