Jan. 26, 2017
LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - The UNLV men's and women's swimming teams close out their 2016-17 dual meet schedule this weekend on Senior Day against Wyoming on Saturday at 12 pm at Buchanan Natatorium. The divers meanwhile will be in Colorado Springs, Colo., this weekend, competing in the two-day Air Force Invitational, running from Friday-Saturday.
This will be the diving squad's second time competing in the platform event this season, the first being at the Mizzou Invite (Nov. 17-19). Robert Morgan and Alexander Rojas will be representing the Rebel men, while Alyssa Arnett, Katie Bezte, Kourtney Clark, Mykalla Fielding and Chrysoula Gatsios round off the women's side.
"The Air Force Invite is going to be a great meet to prepare us for our upcoming conference competitions," said head diving coach Landon Marzullo. "My divers have had a solid month of training prior to the meet. I expect our divers to compete and hang with the best at this competition. Not only is this an high pressure situation, we will also be competing against many teams in our conference."
Ten seniors will be honored during the meet on Saturday for Senior Day: Kasey Foley, Murilo Gustineli, Tom Paco-Pedroni and Brenton Sayers for the men, while Kimberly Hendrick, Kristina Hendrick, Josefine Hippi, Janelle Nguyen, Gozde Tekin and Kelsey Wuoti represent the women.
