Utah vs. USC
- Hosted by USC
- Saturday, January 14th
- 25 yards
- Dual meet format
FINAL TEAM SCORES:
- USC – 138
- Utah – 106
The USC women’s team finished off their weekend competition with a decisive win where the final score didn’t necessarily serve as an indication of the Trojans’ dominance. USC freshmen Becca Mann, Stanzi Moseley, and Tatum Wade all touched first in at least one individual event to lead the Women of Troy. Given USC switched to exhibition swims for the second half of the meet, the Trojans won by just 32 points, but touched first in each event.
USC opened the meet with 1-2-3 finishes in five straight individual events, with Mann striking first in the 1000 free (9:57.54). The distance star would later come back and win the 500 in 4:54.85. Southern California native Stanzi Moseley covered the next event, winning the 200 free in 1:50.99. Following 1-2-3 finishes in the 100 back and 100 breaststroke led by Hannah Weiss (back, 53.62) and Riley Scott (breast, 1:01.26), Wade hit the water in the 200 fly, and edged out freshman teammate Catherine Sanchez, 2:00.26 to 2:00.66. Wade would later win the 100 free in 50.10.

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).

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.
