NCAA Div. I Men: No. 1 Stanford Defeats No. 5 Arizona State, 136-99 -- January 26, 2002

STANFORD, Calif., Jan. 26. THE top-ranked Stanford men's swimming team defeated No. 5 Arizona State, 136-99, this afternoon in a dual meet held at the Avery Aquatic Complex on the campus of Stanford University.

The Cardinal improve to 6-0 on the year, 2-0 in the Pac-10 while the Sun Devils drop to 5-2.

Stanford kicked off the meet with a win in the 400 medley relay in a NCAA provisional qualifying time of 3:13.50 (Randall Bal, Michael Bruce, Dan Westcott, Jeff Guyman). Bal's time of 46.77 in the first leg of the relay, broke the pool record in the 100 backstroke. In the second event on the day, Cardinal Matt Sorlien turned in a superb performance, barely missing the pool record in the 1000 freestyle with a time of 8:56.25. His time is the fastest in this event this year.

Cardinals' Markus Rogan (1:37.54) and Dan Trupin (1:37.77) finished 1-2 respectively in the 200 free. Randall Bal (20.00) and Peter Marshall (20.02) took first and second in the 50 freestyle. Bal set a new pool record with his time of 20.00 , which is a provisional NCAA qualifying times.

In the 200 IM, Cardinal Michael Bruce placed first in a time of 1:49.24 (NCAA provisional qualifying time) while teammate Michael O'Neil took second (1:51.45). Dan Westcott took first in the 200 butterfly in a time of 1:48.40. Stanford's Andrew Schnell picked up top honors in the 100 freestyle with a time of 44.86.

Markus Rogan picked up his second victory on the afternoon with a win in the 200 backstroke (1:43.42) while Matt Sorlien won the 500 freestyle (4:23.20). Rogan's time in the 200 back was an automatic qualifier for NCAAs. Cardinal Michael Bruce barely missed his own pool record in the 200 breaststroke, turning in a time of 1:57.72 (pool record is 1:57.55).

The final event of the day was the 400 freestyle relay where Stanford turned in the top time with a fast 2:56.99 - .32 seconds off of the pool record.

Freshman diver Adam Peterson took third in the one-meter diving event (282.60) and third in the three-meter event (306.15) to lead the Cardinal divers. Jesse Fonner took fourth in the one-meter event (266.77) while Brian Ferris finished fourth in the three-meter event (279.30).

The Cardinal are next in action in a dual meet against Southern California, on Saturday, February 9 at 1 p.m. in Los Angeles, California.


Stanford's Awesome backstrokers

The Stanford backstrokers Randall Bal (100, 46.77)
and Markus Rogan (200, 1:43.42) swam the fastest times ever in a collegiate meet during the Cardinal-Arizona State dual this afternoon at Avery Aquatics
Complex.

In leading off Stanford's 400 medley relay in 46.77, Bal smashed the record of 46.92 by Texas' Neil Walker, who led off the Longhorns' medley relay against in a dual Auburn Jan. 31, 1998 in Austin.

Walker is American/NCAA recdord-holder in the 100-yard back with his 44.92 prelim relay leadoff split during the 1998 NCAAs in Minneapolis. He won the race itself the following day 45.25 and led off the Longhorns' meldy relay opening night in 45.07 -- history's second-quickest 100. His 45.25 is third-best performance.

Walker, still active, was a Sydney Olympian and won a silver medal as part of the United States' 400 freestyle relay squad.

Bal's pr is 46.31 from leading Stanford's relay at NCAAs last season. The Cardinal school record is 45.43 by Brian Retterer, a time that won the 1995 NCAA title in Indianapolis and was the American/NCAA record until Walker came along a couple of years later.

Teammate Rogan's winning 200 back swim (1:43.42) similarly is the fastest dorsal 200 in a collegiate dual. The old record: 1:43.67 by USC's Lenny
Krayzelburg from the Cal-Trojan dual at SC in January of 1998.

That swim, however, came less than two weeks after Krayzelburg had won the World Championship 200 back in Perth, Australia.

The American/NCAA 200 record is 1:40.06 by Retterer from the '95 NCAA prelims. He won the title with his 1:40.61, history's third-best performance.
Krayzelburg's 1:40.59 that won Pac-10s five years ago is No. 2.

Rogan's pr is 1:41.64, which was good for second behind Texas' Nate Dusing's 1:41.52 at last year's NCAAs. That time ranks him 14th on the all-time
performances' list, ninth performer.

It's also a U.S. Swimming 17-18 NAG record. However, as Rogan is not an American citizen (he swims internationally for Austria and was silver medalist last summer in the 200 back at the World Championships) he can't be a NAG record holder as only American swimmers are eligible to hold such records.
