BAKERSFIELD, Calif.--CSU Bakersfield won six events against No. 23 UNLV in men's swimming action Saturday.
Joao Foresto (R-Sr. Marilia, Sao Paulo, Brazil, Cristol Rei HS) earned first place in the 100 free in a time of :46.85. Gabriel Bertrand (So. Tibro, Sweden, Nykopingssimg Gymnasium) won the 200 free with a 1:41.92 performance.
Mitchell Huxhold (So., Escondido, Calif., San Pasqual HS) finished first in the 1000 free (9:25.81). Troy Neklason (So., Seattle, Wash., Aviation HS) swept the 1m and 3m diving events. For Nekalson it was his ninth and 10th victories on the season (in 12 starts).
The 400 free relay of Fran Cverle (Jr. Zagreb, Croatia, Limestone College), Mitch Wurm (Sr. Mesa, Ariz., Dobson HS), Charles Yuhas (Fr., Torrance, Calif., South HS), and Alex Daneke (R-Sr., Lodi, Calif., UC Davis) won the final race of the day in a time of 3:06.55. The Rebels would win the dual 169.5-128.5.
"Winning the last relay was huge for us," said CSUB director of swimming Chris Hansen. "This is the closest we have been in a dual against UNLV. Being this close to a top 25 team today and a top 25 team on the women's side on Friday proves that we are going in the right direction."
The Roadrunners travel to UC San Diego next Saturday for a 12 p.m. dual.
