The Trojans stayed perfect this weekend as the USC men traveled to Cal Poly for the 2nd dual meet of the season.
Haughey’s 55.24 in the 100 IM tops Kathleen Baker’s 56.52 from the Queen of the Pool meet by over a second.
He trailed UCSB’s Mullis at the halfway point, but used his back half speed to run away with it through the final 100. Mulcare wound up negative splitting the race (53.43/53.20), winning it in 1:46.63 to Mullis’ 1:47.92.
The women traveled to Cal Poly for a dual meet, bringing home the win with 168.5 points to Cal Poly’s 125.5 points. Jasmine Margetts led the way with 3 individual wins.
All-American Siobhan Haughey had an impressive showing to start the season. She won both the 200 free (1:45.7) and 100 free (48.5) by nearly 5 seconds.
Junior Riley Scott was arguably the most impressive swimmer of the meet, taking 3 wins individually.
They may not have the depth to challenge Stanford for a title, but with their sprint talent, they should be challenging for several relay titles and should get multiple individual titles with Baker alone.
Incoming freshman Ryan Hoffer is a huge addition for the Bears and will play a big role on the relays in addition to being a key player individually. He’s already fast enough to have scored big in both sprints at 2017 NCAAs.
Wedneday brought a first look at some of the key freshmen players for the Bulldogs this season.
Ryan Held and Justin Ress headline an NC State team that seeks an ACC 4-peat this season.

All-in-all, the Bulldogs have some weak spots, but their depth in the IMs and distance freestyles should help them significantly at SECs and NCAAs.
Former USA National Teamer Eugene Godsoe is not only known for his skills in the pool. The 4-time World Championships medalist is also recognized for his musical talents.
The Longhorns are slated to battle 3 top 10 opponents from last season’s NCAAs, the first of which will be #3 Florida and #7 Indiana in a tri-meet on September 29th.
