    MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - Boise State swimmers and divers came out on top in nine events on the opening night of the Jean Freeman Invitational Friday night.

    Sophomore Felicity Cann led the way with three wins on the night, capturing the 200 (1:50.70) and 500 frees (4:56.49) while being part of the winning 400 medley relay quartet (3:46.13) along with Jessica Bottelberghe, Sydney Johansen and Sam Wicks. Fellow sophomore Brittany Aoyama claimed wins in the 50 free (23.17) and 200 fly (1:59.67), posting an NCAA B Standard in the latter by 0.32 of a second. It marks the fourth event in which Aoyama has hit a B Standard this season.

    Junior Blake Balogh (1:51.09) took second in the 200 free and freshman Amelia Draney (5:01.28) took third in the 500 free.

    Freshman Kacee Olson picked up the first win of her collegiate career and recorded her first NCAA Zone Qualifying Score in the 3-Meter, topping all divers with a score of 286.60. Senior Erin Kohlbeck (278.05) and sophomore Karli Kriewall (273.50) rounded out a Bronco sweep of the top three positions. Fellow freshman Kiley Carlson took ninth with a score of 225.85.
