Trojans Breeze By Utah, 138-106|
Jan. 14, 2017
Sophomore Riley Scott and freshmen Becca Mann and Tatum Wade won two events each to pace a No. 6 USC women’s swimming team that captured every event en route to a 138-106 victory over Utah on Saturday (Jan. 14) at the Uytengsu Aquatics Center.
The USC women improved to 6-0 overall, 4-0 in the Pac-12. The Trojan women and men also swept Wisconsin on Friday.
“The weekend was outstanding,” USC Head Coach Dave Salo said. “It sets us up well as we heat up in the Pac-12 schedule and move toward the postseason.”
Mann, who lowered her season-best in the 1000y free Friday against Wisconsin, won the event today in 9:57.54 to lead the first of many 1-2-3 USC sweeps. Sophomores Elizabeth Stinson (10:03.09) and Allie Wooden (10:07.04) followed Mann into the wall.
Weiss won the 100y back with a 53.62 to lead a sweep as sophomore Hanni Leach took second (54.43) and Apostalon third (54.73).
Apostalon finished off the first set of action with a win in the 50y free in 23.12 with Moseley second (23.87). Utah’s Julienne Tadena was third (23.99).
Wade, showing off her versatility, followed the diving break with a win in the 100y free in 50.10 (0.64 off her season best) as senior Chelsea Chenault was second (50.47) and Scott third (52.03).
Freshman Louise Hansson won the 200y back in 1:57.54 (0.08 off her season best) with Leach second (1:59.87) and freshman Abby Miller third (2:02.94). Kafka (2:15.78) and Hayward (2:15.83) followed with a 1-2 finish in the 200y breast.
Mann doubled up with a victory in the 500y free in 4:54.85 with Wooden second (4:57.00) and Stinson third (5:02.77). Heading into the diving break, Wright took the 100y fly in 55.26 with Weiss second (55.42), Moseley third (56.32).
Scott joined the group of double-winners with a 2:00.90 to take the 200y IM while Utah’s Jordan Anderson, younger sister of former USC NCAA champion Haley Anderson, was second (2:06.20).
The Trojans closed the meet as the quartet of Apostalon, Chenault, Hansson and Wade won the 400y free relay won in 3:1994
