    Six different Trojans won events Saturday in Palo Alto, but it wasn’t enough to overcome host Stanford as the No. 1 Cardinal defeated No. 13 USC, 179-121, on Saturday (Feb. 4).

    USC was in a hole from the start after a DQ in the opening 200y medley relay and a 1-2-3 Stanford sweep in the 1000y free.

    But the Trojans countered with three straight wins as junior Dylan Carter won the 200y free (1:34.96), junior Ralf Tribuntov (47.20) and Patrick Mulcare (47.88) went 1-2 in the 100y back and sophomore Carsten Vissering took the 100y breast (53.08) with senior Steven Stumph third (55.62).

    The Cardinal swept the 200y fly before junior Santo Condorelli (20.26) and sophomore Kyle Grissom went 2-3 in the 50y free heading into the first diving break.

    Trojan freshman Henry Fusaro placed second on 3-meter with 405.45, just short of Bradley Christensen’s 411.15. Fusaro later won 1-meter with 334.13, 4.73 ahead of Christensen.

    Carter (43.83) and Tribuntsov (44.57) came back to go 2-3 in the 100y free and Mulcare followed with a big win in the 200y back in 1:41.91 with junior Jon Knox third (1:46.74).

    After Stumph (1:59.30) and Vissering (1:59.96) went 1-3 in the 200y breast, USC closed to within 116-91, but Stanford followed with a 1-2-3 finish in the 500y free to pull away for the win.

    USC closes the season with senior day against Utah on Feb. 18 at 11a.m.
