    RENO, Nev. – Boise State suffered a road loss at Nevada Saturday, dropping the dual meet, 199-101.

    The Broncos won just three of the 16 events, and for the first time this season in a dual or tri-meet failed to win a relay event, as Nevada captured the 200 medley and 400 free relays.

    “It was Nevada’s Senior Day and they were pretty excited, and they fed off of that,” said Boise State head coach Jeremy Kipp. “But most of our girls were pretty consistent with their times. Brittany and Sam picked up our wins, and they’re getting faster, getting more confidence with each meet.

    “I think we’re right where we’re supposed to be right now in early November. Our goals remain winning the conference title and then getting to the NCAA Championships. [Today’s meet] isn’t something that we’re going to look at and think our season’s over. We’re going to keep doing what we’re doing and not make a big deal about it until February.”

    Brittany Aoyama and Sam Wicks combined for the three Bronco victories Saturday, with Aoyama sweeping the 100 and 200 fly events and Wicks capturing the 100 back. Wicks picked up the first win of the day for Boise State, touching first in the 100 back with a time of 55.39. Aoyama then was victorious in the 200 fly with a time of 2:02.58 before taking the 100 fly in 54.73. Katelyn Martin finished second in the 50 free (23.92).

    The 200 medley relay team of Wicks, Laura Williams, Aoyama and Martin (1:42.43) was nicked at the wall, falling to Nevada’s foursome of Josefin Eriksen, Ary Medina, Sita Kusserow and Rebecca Murray by just 0.45 of a second.

    On the diving boards, the Broncos went 2-3-4 on 1-meter as Karli Kriewall (269.03), Kacee Olson (257.18) and Cassidy Bose (245.63) finished behind Nevada’s Krysta Palmer (322.28), who also captured the 3-meter event with a score of 349.05, as Olson was third with a score of 253.88 to pace Boise State.

    Teresa Baerens and Yawen Li each recorded three individual wins for the Wolf Pack, as Baerens took the 50, 100 and 200 frees and Li captured the 1,000 free, 200 breast and 200 IM. Baerens was also part of Nevada’s winning 400 free relay team.

    Boise State returns to action at the Art Adamson Invitational in College Station, Texas from Nov. 18-21.
