The No. 6 USC men's swimming team, its seniors given the day off, turned to its freshmen, sophomores and juniors against Pac-10 rival Washington and produced a 119-86 dual-meet on a blustery campus day at USC's McDonald's Swim Stadium.

The Trojans, who got a pair of firsts from sophomore Vanni Mangoni and a pair of relay wins, improved to 4-0. The Huskies fell to 0-1.

Mangoni won the 200y IM (1:55.09) and 200y back (1:52.63), touching just ahead of freshman teammate James Martin (1:52.88) in the latter.

On a day when times reflected the windy conditions - not too mention the holiday break - USC swept the 400y free and medley relays. Freshmen Shane Tusup and Tyler Schlenker, sophomore Ankur Poseria and freshman Kevin Graner teamed to win the 400y medley relay in 3:27.50. To wrap up the meet, juniors Richard Gosper and Tyler Wilson, Poseria and freshman Drew Harris won the 400y free relay in 3:10.19.

Wilson earlier won the 50y free in 21.56 while junior Brandon Lovell won the 200y fly in 1:52.65. Gosper, USC's fastest in the 50y free this season, won the 100y free in 46.27 while sophomore Kazu Miyahara won the 200y breast in 2:06.29. Freshmen Tyler Schlenker (2:07.76) and Lovell (2:07.82) finished in order behind Miyahara.

The USC men compete in its final home meet of the season when it hosts UC Santa Barbara on Saturday (Jan. 6) at noon.
