Sam Wicks of Anchorage was victorious in all four of her races as the Bose State University women’s swimming and diving team extended its home win streak to 18 straight.

Boise State defeated Nevada 163-97 with Wicks bookending the meet with relay wins.

The all-conference junior star opened things up with a win in the 400 medley relay in 3:47.65. That was the first of five straight wins for the Broncos.

Wicks, of East High fame, also won the 100 backstroke [55.96] and 100 freestyle [51.80].

She ended her awesome afternoon with a win in the 200 free relay in 1:34.52.

This was her fourth 4-for-4 performance of the season and it continued a trend of her dominating in the pool.

Earlier this season she set school records in the 200 individual medley [1:58.83] and 100 back [52.92]. She also helped set a pool record and post the eighth-fastest time in school history in the 200 medley relay.

Last season, Wicks earned six All-Mountain West honors and won a pair of conference titles in relays.
