LAS VEGAS – It was twice as nice for the Nevada swimming and diving team on Friday, as the Wolf Pack earned a dual meet sweep over BYU and UNLV.

The Wolf Pack defeated the Cougars 130-112 and UNLV 127-109 to win its first two dual meets of the season. In its only other meet of the season, Nevada finished second at the eight-team Pacific Invitational.

Nevada swimmers and divers won nine of the 12 events contested and also took the top two spots in three of those events.

Three Wolf Pack swimmers also made the NCAA “B” cuts. Those swimmers included Jia Lin Sun, Limin Liu, and the relay team of Terina Cook, Laura Bartle, Sun and Liu.

The team’s next meet is at the Cal Swimming and Diving Meet in Berkeley, Calif. on Friday.
