Reno, Nev.----- Taylor Solorio and Colleen Humel each won an individual event and swam on San Jose State University's victorious 400-yard freestyle relay team, but the University of Nevada came up with a 179-118 women's swimming and diving dual meet win.
San Jose State (4-2) had six first-place finishes in the 16-event meet.
"We had a decent day. For as long as I've been here, swimming at Reno has been a challenge. We had a number of good performances and we have had a strong season thus far," said San Jose State women's swimming and diving coach Sage Hopkins about facing the undefeated Nevada team (5-0).
Solorio won the 50 free in 24.24 to remain unbeaten in the event in dual meet competition this season. Humel captured the 200 back in 2:03.30. Solorio led off and Humel anchored the winning 400 free relay team with Gabby Heng and Kimberlee Giggey in between in 3:31.29.
Allyson Fellows in the 1,000 free, Jenner Johnson in the 200 breast and Brenna Bushey in the 100 fly also picked up wins for San Jose State. Bushey won a 100 fly for the second meet in a row and Fellows finished first in a freestyle distance race for the second time in eight days.
The Spartans conclude their dual meet season, Saturday, January 28 at Fresno State.
