Six Trojans Win Events In Loss At Stanford|
Feb. 4, 2017
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).
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.
