Women's Swimming, Diving Upsets UCLA

Feb. 10, 2001

LOS ANGELES - Senior Corrie Murphy, junior Kellie Brennan and sophomores Michala Kwasny and Asa Sandlund won two events apiece to lead the No. 10 USC women's swimming and diving team to a 164-136 upset of No. 6 UCLA at the USC McDonald's Swim Stadium on Saturday (Feb. 10).

Seven different Trojan swimmers and divers posted wins as USC improved to 4-3 overall and 2-3 in the Pac-10.

Murphy posted the only NCAA automatic qualifying time of the day for USC, swimming a 4:14.96 in the 400 IM for the win. She also won the 200 back in 2:00.91, an NCAA consideration time.

Sophomore Jenny Parmenter, however, may have turned in the most surprising swim of the day. An underdog in the 200 free, Parmenter dropped almost three seconds off of her season's top time to win the event in 1:48.44, an NCAA consideration time. Parmenter also took second in the 100 free (50.82, NCAA consideration) and third in the 50 free (23.82), both season bests.

Across from the swim pool, Brennan and freshman Nicci Fusaro were dominating the diving area. Brennan won both the 1-meter (275.03) and the 3-meter (299.33) while Fusaro took second in both events, scoring 256.65 in the 1-meter and 298.80 in the 3-meter.

Though MacGregor and Kwasny were among a handful of USC swimmers who were battling colds on Saturday, both came through with big wins. Kwasny won the 200 fly in 1:59.53 and took the 200 breast in 2:16.32 (season best). MacGregor won the 100 breast in 1:03.36 not long after taking third in the 200 free.

Sandlund opened the individual competition with an easy win the 1650 free (16:42.16) while teammate Melissa Deary took second in 17:05.20. Sandlund led a 1-2-3 finish in the 500 free, winning the race in 4:53.18. Deary was second (4:58.91) and sophomore Heather Valerio was third (5:00.71).

USC's other winner was Katie Meyer, who won the 100 back in 55.94, a season best mark and an NCAA consideration time.

UCLA was led by Sara Platzer, who won both the 50 (23.40) and the 100 free (50.43). The Bruins also won both the 400 medley and free relays.

Next up for USC is the Women's Pacific-10 Conference Championships on Feb. 22-24 in Seattle.
