Women Of Troy Defeated At Stanford

Feb. 1, 2003

USC sophomore Margie Pedder won two races for the second consecutive day while senior Asa Sandlund and sophomore diver Blythe Hartley each won twice as well, but it wasn't enough for No. 5 USC, which fell at No. 4 Stanford, 164-136, on Saturday (Feb. 1) in Stanford, Calif.

The Trojans fells to 4-3 overall, 2-2 in the Pacific-10 Conference.

Pedder, who won the 500y and 1000y free on Friday at California, finished first in the 200y free (1:50.05) and the 200y fly (1:59.10). She was also second in the 1650y free (16:38.49) while freshman Joy Galloway was third (16:46.38). Pedder and Galloway's times were season bests in the 1650y free.

Hartley won the 1-meter springboard (317.77) and the 3-meter springboard (324.00). Junior Nicci Fusaro was second in the 3-meter and fourth on the 1-meter.

Sandlund touched first in the 1650y free (16:38.49) and the 500y free (4:53.22) while junior Jana Krohn won the 100y fly (54.69).

Keys to Stanford's win included sweeping both relays (taking first and third in both) as well strong swims by Kristen Caverly in both backstrokes and Tara Kirk in both breaststrokes.

Sophomore Kaitlin Sandeno posted an NCAA consideration time while taking second in the 100y free (51.11). Joanna Fargus was second in the 200y back in 2:01.19 (NCAA consideration).

USC wraps up the dual meet season when it hosts UCLA on Feb. 15.
