LAS VEGAS -

"I am really proud of the team's performance," head coach Joe Dykstra

to close the meet with a victory in the 200 free relay (1:20.59).
Stoddard and Phillips also captured individual wins in the 50 free and 100 free respectively. The Utes made it a clean sweep in the freestyle events as Rahiti De Vos
won the 200 in 1:41.20 and the 500 in 4:32.89. Freshman Nick Becker
took the 1000 in 9:23.73 to cap a solid showing.
