Season Starts Saturday For Rebels

Oct. 19, 2017

LAS VEGAS ( - UNLV swimming and diving will be hosting its 2017-18 season opener against CSU Bakersfield at the Jim Reitz Pool on Saturday. The diving portion will begin at 9:30 am, and the swimming events will start at 12 pm.

For the Rebel women, this will be the first overall competition for the 2017-18 season. Highlighting the returnees are junior Alyssa Arnett, senior Kyndal Phillips and sophomore Sofia Carenvale, and all three were all-conference last season.

"We're excited to finally get some head-to-head racing," said UNLV head coach Ben Loorz. "It marks the middle third of our season, and it will be a great test of our ability to swim fast through heavy training."

Expected to be among the leading performers for the men's squad this year is a trio of returning seniors: Or Sabatier, Forrest Beesley and Francois Van Wynsberghe.

Both teams have brought in a strong crop of newcomers for this season as well, including transfer Sara Delay on the women's side and freshman Grant Norgan for the men.
