LAS VEGAS - The UNLV women's swimming and diving team claimed its first win of the season on Friday afternoon with a 147-89 victory over New Mexico at the Henderson Multi-Generational Center.

The Rebels, who won a total of eight out of 13 events on the afternoon, were led by double-event winner Marley Prothero as she touched the wall first in both the 400 IM (4:29.67) and the 500 free (5:09.20).
