SWIMMING/DIVING

Miami picked up 22 top-three times on Saturday as the Hurricanes defeated Florida International 152-79 at the Bay Vista Aquatics Complex in Miami, Fla.

In the final dual race of the season before the ACC Championships in late February, the Canes (10-7) finished with their best record since combining the men’s and women’s programs.

Junior Brittany Viola took the three-meter diving event, while senior Jenna Dreyer won the one-meter springboard in her first action since Oct. 25 at Duke.

UM swept the 200 freestyle, 200 individual medley and 100 butterfly. In team spots, the Hurricanes posted top times in the 200 medley relay and 200 freestlyle relay. Freshman Ryann Labreche finished first in both the 200 and 500 freestyles.

The Canes improved to 9-0 all-time against the Panthers (2-9).

SOCCER

University of Miami freshman goalkeeper Vikki Alonzo was named to the Soccer Buzz Third-Team Freshman All-American squad and sophomore defender Brittney Macdonald earned a spot on the All-Southeast Third-Team.

Alonzo also made it on the Southeast All-Freshman Team after recording a school-record 11 shutouts, shattering the previous record of six. She already ranks first in school history in single-season saves (114), goals-against-average (0.88) and minutes in goal (2,055).

Macdonald was an integral part of Alonzo’s record-setting season and was named to the Soccer Buzz Elite Team of the Week in week 10.
