Tucson, Ariz. - Third-ranked Arizona (4-1) handed #4 Stanford (1-1) a 135.5-107.5 defeat in a Pac-10 women's swimming and diving dual meet on Saturday. Stanford won seven of the 13 events contested but fell victim to an Arizona team filled with depth. Stanford senior Misty Hyman, a Phoenix native, had her second consecutive big meet in her home state as she won both of her individual events and swam the third leg on the Cardinal's winning 400 medley relay team. Hyman, who won three individual events and also was on a relay winner at Arizona State on Friday, captured both the 200 individual medley (2:01.20) and the 200 butterfly (1:56.25) against the Wildcats. Hyman's 200 butterfly performance met the NCAA 'A' Qualifying Standard.Junior Jessica Foschi contributed a pair of individual wins in the 1000 freestyle (10:03.40) and the 500 freestyle (4:50.45). Stanford's other individual winners were senior Siobhan Cropper in the 100 freestyle (51.17) and sophomore diver McKenze Murphy in the one-meter competition (career-high 280.80 points). The Cardinal's winning 400 medley relay team (3:41.33) consisted of freshmen Megan Baumgartner and Tara Kirk, as well as Hyman and junior Lauren Thies.
Sophomore Amanda Beard led Arizona's five individual winners, recording an NCAA 'A' Qualifying Standard time of 2:11.02 to win the 200 breast. The Wildcats other individual winners included juniors Sarah Tolar (200 freestyle, 1:47.99) and Jenny Vanker (50 freestyle, 23.59), as well as sophomore Beth Botsford (200 backstroke, 2:01.79) and senior Adrian David (three-meter, 300.68).
