Palo Alto High junior Jasmine Tosky and Stanford-bound Maddie Schaefer from St. Francis both won titles and swam on a winning relay team to propel the Palo Alto Stanford Aquatics girls' team to an early lead at the Southern Zone-Speedo Champions Series at Texas A&M University in College Station on Friday.

Tosky won the 200-yard backstroke in 1:55.88 with teammates Ally Howe third (1:56.66) and Alicia Grima sixth (1:59.08). Schaefer won the 100 free in a sizzling 48.49 with Julia Ama from Gunn finished ninth in 50.43.

Tosky came back to win the 200 fly in a meet record of 1:54.63, breaking her own mark of 1:56.29 set last year. Howe was third in 1:59.39 while PASA's Naomi Thomas was 10th in 2:03.37.

Grima, Schaefer, Ama and Tosky finished off the night by winning the 800 free relay in another meet record, 7:15.94.

In the men's competition, Stanford grad Phillip Morrison was third in the 500 free (4:27.36). He also swam on the fifth-place 400 free relay that included Paly's Andrew Liang and Byron Sanborn. They clocked 3:06.43. Ronald Chen swam the third leg.

The meet continues on Saturday, site of the 2010 NCAA Championships.
