USC’s ‘A’ relay of freshmen Louise Hansson, Tatum Wade, Stanzi Moseley and Becca Mann threw down a 7:03.92 for an NCAA A cut and a third in the relay final. The B team of sophomore Kirsten Vose, senior Chelsea Chenault, sophomore Allie Wooden and senior Anika Apostalon was sixth in a B cut of 7:08.62.
Hansson’s leadoff 1:43.33 was just off her season-best A cut of 1:43.04 while Vose’s 1:46.41 was a season-best B cut.
The men followed with a second-place swim as junior Dylan Carter, sophomore Patrick Mulcare, senior Michael Domagala and junior Santo Condorelli clocked an NCAA A cut of 6:18.93, behind only Stanford’s 6.15.58 and 1.98 ahead of host Texas.
Carter, who with Domagala were part of the Trojans’ 2015 NCAA win in the event, led off with a USC season-best NCAA A cut 1:32.61 in the first 200, fastest of the leadoff swims by 1.08.
