Stanford Men Bounce Back in Sweep of Arizona

The Stanford women won every event in leading a sweep of Arizona Saturday in Tucson. The men’s team, ranked 12th in the nation, claimed a 190-86 win over the Wildcats, a day after falling to Arizona State. The women’s team completed a sweep of the Arizona schools on the weekend by downing Arizona, 169.5-99.5.

The women’s team didn’t exactly have to max out their lineup to get things done easily. The 100 backstroke was a fitting early statement, won by Claire Curzan in 52.95 seconds. Janelle Rudolph and Amy Tang followed her to the wall.

Torri Huske won the 100 free in 50.56. She also posted the fastest time in the 400 individual medley (4:16.28). Aurora Roghair was second to Huske in the 100 free, then took third in the 200 back an event later.

Morgan Tankersley won the 200 free, by .26 seconds over teammate Natalie Mannion, and was third in the 50 free. Mannion won the 500 free, ahead of Lucy Bell, who won the 100 breaststroke. Lillie Nordmann won the 200 fly and was second to Alex Crisera in the 200 back.

Kayla Wilson (1,000 free), Emma Wheal (50 free), Allie Raab (200 breast) and Gigi Johnson (100 fly) added wins for the Cardinal. Huske, Bell, Curzan and Tang won the 200 medley relay.

Arizona won both diving events behind Delaney Schnell, who scored 342.38 on 1-meter and 320.48 on platform.

Rafael Gu led the way for Stanford. He won the 200 free, rallying with a final 50 of 24.23 to pip Arizona’s Ralph Daleiden at the wall by .11 seconds. He won the 50 in 20.30, then took the 100 fly in 47.71.

Beyond that, the most excitement came from Andrei Minakov laying down a time of 43.72 off the front of the 400 free relay. That helped the team of Luke Maurer, Leon MacAlister and Neel Roy win in 2:55.95.

Hayden Kwan swept the backstroke events. Ethan Dang won the 200 breast and was third in the 100. Rick Mihm won the 400 IM after finishing third in the 100 back. Maurer did the same in the 500 free and 200 free, respectively. Peyton Forst (1,000 free), Zhier Fan (100 breast) and McAllister (100 free) added wins for the Cardinal. Jack Ryan won the only diving event of the day, scoring 382.73 on 3-meter.

Arizona fired an opening salvo by winning the 200 medley relay by .22 seconds, the squad of Ryans – Ryan Purdy, Ryan Foote, Ryan Perham – and Marin Ercegovic going 1:28.37, but they couldn’t sustain it. Ercegovic was the runner-up in the 50 free, as was Purdy in the 100 back and Foote in the 100 breast. Parnham was third in the 50 and the 500 free.

Arizona’s only win came in the 200 fly via Haakon Naughton.
