No. 2 Cal upends No. 3 Southern California

LOS ANGELES -- Jeremy Bagshaw, Josh Prenot and Ryan Murphy each won two races apiece as No. 2-ranked Cal defeated No. 3 Southern California 174-125 in a key Pac-12 dual meet. With the victory, the Golden Bears improved their dual meet record to 7-0 and have now won 14 consecutive dual meets carrying over from last season.

Senior distance freestyle Bagshaw won the 500 (4:21.19) and 1000 free (9:02.19), sophomore Prenot was the winner of the 200 breast (1:59.22) and 400 IM (3:51.93) and Murphy captured the 100 (46.95) and 200 back (1:43.52). In all, David Durden’s squad won 11 races, including the opening 200 medley relay of Murphy, junior Chuck Katis, senior Tony Cox and sophomore Tyler Messerschmidt (1:27.00).

“Our guys did a nice job of swimming in some tough situations,” Durden said. “I thought Jeremy (Bagshaw) set the tone early on through his performance in the 1000 free, and our guys followed suit. It was good to race surrounded by friends, family and alumni over the past two days. We are looking forward to getting back home.”

Other winners for Cal included Katis in the 100 breast (54.70), senior Marcin Tarczynski in the 200 fly (1:45.79), junior Henry Chung in the 50 free (20.56) and Messerschmidt in the 100 free (44.13).
