USC’s freshman class rallied to push the team ahead of Oregon State, winning 164-90 over their Pac-12 foe.

Harrison picked up two wins for Oregon State, winning the 1000 freestyle with a time of 10:05.96 and then the 500 freestyle with a time of 4:56.96.

Freshman Allie Wooden, Riley Scott, and Destiny Nelson had a big days for the Trojans, winning two events a piece.

Wooden sweet the 100 and 200 freestyles in 50.83 and 1:49.17, respectively, while Scott swept the breaststroke events in 1:03.08 and 2:15.00. Nelson won both events as well, although her second event didn’t count for points. USC entered all of their swimmers in the 200 IM as exhibition swimmers to make it look less like the blow out that it was. Nelson won the 200 backstroke in 1:59.88 and later won the 200 IM in 2:02.95.
