    THIS WEEK'S MEET
    Wednesday, March 5 though Saturday, March 8
    #3 Stanford (6-1, 4-1 Pac-10) competes in the Pac-10 Championships
    King County Aquatics Center, Federal Way, Wash.

    THE PAC-10
    The Pac-10 features three ranked teams of the six that compete in men's swimming. Arizona is currently ranked No. 2 after defeating Stanford in a dual meet on January 26. Arizona is also coming off a dual meet win over No. 1Texas and should move to No.1 when the new rankings are released. Stanford is ranked No. 3 and California is ranked No. 11. USC, Arizona State, and Washington round out the Pac-10 in men's swimming.

    STANFORD
    Stanford is coming off a win over California on February 23 in their final dual meet of the season. Stanford is led by
    Nate Cass, Austin Staab, and Jason Dunford who have acheived automatic national qualifying times already this season. Cass achieved his mark in the 200 breast, while Staab and Dunford achieved their marks in the 100 fly. In addition, Stanford has a national `B' cut in every other event, including diving and the relays.

    Paul Kornfeld is the school record holder in the 100 breaststroke and should be a major factor in the 100 and 200 breastroke. In addition to 100 fly, Dunford should be a factor in the 50 and 100 freestyle.Stanford has won the Pac-10 Championships 26 consecutive years. It is the longest streak of any sport in Pac-10 history. Despite the strong team from Stanford, the streak will be tested this year by the strong Pac-10, particularly Arizona.

    QUOTABLE
    Head Coach Skip Kenney on the meet, 'Our team goal is to qualify as many Stanford swimmers for the NCAA Championships as possible. Because it's an Olympic year the Pac 10 and NCAA Championship meets will be faster than normal. The team looks good and is ready to swim fast.'
