In their last home meet of the season, Spartans (6-2) won 10 events against Nevada securing the 156-140 win against the Wolfpack.

"I couldn't be happier with our team's performance today. Nevada is a tremendous team and we knew we were going to have our work cut out for us," said head coach Sage Hopkins. "We had to swim our best swimming of the year and we did that. We are very proud of the total team performance."

Seniors Ashlyn Acosta, Darcie Anderson, Taylor Curado, and Erika Harvey each had first place finishes following Senior Day festivities.

Erika Harvey placed first in the 50 free with a time of 23.65 and teamed up with Curado, Riley Spitser and Bush in the 400 free relay.

"Individually people are looking really good and we are going into the most important part of our season and we are in a really good spot."
