SAN ANTONIO, Texas (UNLVRebels.com) -

A fourth new school record for the week was the highlight for UNLV on Saturday night as the Rebels closed out action at the 2014 Mountain West Women's Swimming & Diving Championships, held at the Palo Alto Aquatic Center. UNLV would finish the meet in seventh place with 282.2 points, while Boise State won the title with 735.

UNLV's first points on the night came from Jessica Wong, as she placed 13th in the 200 back with a time of 2:00.84. Next was the 100 free, in which four Rebels scored. Leading the way was Jessica Heim, who placed seventh in 50.43. Her swim of 49.76 was the third fastest time in UNLV history. The Rebels placed three more in the consolation heat, with Julia Fehervari taking 12th (50.49), Jessica Marsh 14th (50.61) and Kateylne Herrington 16th (51.44).

The final individual points came from freshman Janelle Nguyen, as she recorded a 15th-place finish in the 200 fly in 2:04.08. UNLV ended this year's championships with its fourth school record, with the 400 free relay team of Heim, Michelle Troup, Elena Gavrilova and Rachel Dixon posting a time of 3:17.52 to come in second place.


Due to the Rebels finishing behind Nevada, Reno in the overall standings, UNR receives three points in the Governor's Series all-sports competition between the schools that is sponsored by NV Energy. UNLV still leads the overall standings by a 9-6 margin.

Next up for UNLV will be the NCAA Championships, held on March 20-22 in Minneapolis, Minn.
