Stanford, Calif. - On senior day, Stanford men's swimming showed just what a great graduating class they have with a convincing 213-86 win over USC. The Cardinal dominated the competition to stay undefeated (7-0, 4-0 Pac-10).

Jason Dunford led the group of seniors with a pair of individual event wins as well as playing a role in both winning relays. Individually, Dunford captured the 100 free with a time of 44.16 as well as the 100 fly with a time of 47.65.

In the 400 medley relay, Dunford anchored the team made up of Eugene Godsoe, John Criste and Austin Staab en route to a winning time of 3:13.95, a NCAA `B' standard.

In the 200 free relay Dunford led off a team that included his brother David Dunford, Alex Coville and Jake Allen. The team won the race with a NCAA `B' standard time of 1:19.79.

Two other seniors also had event wins on Saturday with Phillip Morrison capturing the 200 free and Paul Kornfeld the 100 breast. Morrison finished strong, winning with a time of 1:38.63, while Kornfeld edged teammate John Criste with a time of 55.28.

Godsoe proved it was not just the seniors who swam well by capturing both of the backstroke events. He won the 100 back in a time of 47.97 and the 200 back in a time of 1:46.47.

Other Stanford event winners included Chad La Tourette in the 1,650 free, Bobby Bollier in the 200 fly, Alex Coville in the 50 free and Criste in the 200 breast.

La Tourette finished with a time of 15:25.95 in an event where he already owns the nation's top time.
