SAN DIEGO – San Diego resumes its fall competition slate this weekend at the A3 Performance Invitational which is being co-hosted by San Diego State and UC San Diego at the Aztec Aquaplex.

The Toreros will open the weekend with relay competition on Friday evening and compete in individual events on Saturday. FloSwimming will be streaming the competition live for a fee and live results are available by purchasing the Meet Mobile app.

After a three week break from competition, the Toreros will take on an eight-team lineup that includes Azusa Pacific, Fresno Pacific, Cal State East Bay, Loyola Marymount, Pepperdine, San Diego State and UC San Diego. 

The Toreros turned in multiple highlight individual performances in its most recent competition, a double-dual meet against Loyola Marymount and UC Davis on Oct. 29. The Toreros claimed first-place finishes in nine of 14 events overall to go 1-1 as a team against the Lions and Aggies.

Mackenna Briggs, Alex Hubel and Dani Taylor won two events apiece, while Anna Luckenbach and Kailyn Evans each registered one first-place result. Briggs, Hubel, Taylor and Sydney Wong teamed up to secure a first-place finish in the 400 yard freestyle relay.



Briggs went 1:55.55 in the 200 free to claim the top spot and was followed by Wong who finished fourth with a time of 1:57.12. Briggs led a Toreros top-three sweep of the 500 free clocking in at 5:04.81, and was followed by Luckenbach (5:04.92) and Sam Terranova (5:11.30).

USD was excellent in the relay events and opened the meet with a second-place finish in the 200 medley relay with a time of 1:47.12. Taylor, Evans, Maeve Murdoch and Hubel teamed up for the second-place result.

The Toreros claimed the first and third positions in the 400 free relay to conclude the competition. Wong, Hubel, Briggs and Taylor turned in a meet-best 3:31.67, while Haitz, Luckenbach, Murdoch and Alyssa Hornbuckle finished third with a 3:39.15.
