WOMEN (6-4, 5-3 MWC) Preview: UNLV enters the conference championships with alot of hope and momentum. Leading the charge for the Rebs will be Bailey Kuestermeyer and Marina Sandback. Both are among the conference leaders in their events, so look for them to score highly for UNLV. Also, watch for Katie Wronn, Marva Harpak and Lani Seaman, all of whom have done a fantastic job this season.
MEN (5-2/4-1 MWC) Preview: The Rebel men look to defend their MWC Swimming Championship this upcoming week in Oklahoma City, Okla.
