SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Junior Paige Hunt finished sixth in the one-meter diving competition and sophomore Mairin Jameson was eighth to help the University of Idaho Vandals maintain their fifth-place status at the Western Athletic Conference Championship Meet.

Hunt tallied 271 points and Jameson had 239.45 for the best Vandal diving efforts in school history.

"We had some great moments tonight," coach Mark Sowa said. "I feel like we can still be better tomorrow."

Some of the brightest moments for the Vandals came in the 200 individual medley where the school record fell twice in one day with sophomore Lyndsay Williams breaking it in her preliminary heat then hitting it again in a swim off with her 2:04.06.

In the evening finals of the 200 IM, Kelsie Saxe had the top Vandal finishiwth a 2:04.36 for 10th with Megan Venlos 13th at 2:05.87, Williams was 14th in 2:06.01, Erica Anderson was 17th in 2:05.99 and Meaghan McCloskey 22nd in 2:11.51.

Rachel Millet led the Vandal freestyle sprinters with her 23.32 (11th) in the 50 free with Si Jia Pang 15th at 23.93 and Katie Hendricks 21st in 24.12.

The 200 free relay (Anderson, Venlos, Hendricks, Pang) was fifth in 1:34.70.

"It was great to see four kids go faster than our school record in the 200 IM as well as Rachel breaking her own 50 free record," Sowa said.
