Stanford men swim to win over Banana Slugs


Stanford men's swimming team won every event in its dual meet at UC Santa Cruz on Saturday to remain unbeaten in the young season.

The Cardinal, coming off a third place NCAA finish and its 30th consecutive Pac-10 title, was led by senior Bobby Bollier, who won both the 100 back and 50 free.

Freshmen David Nolan picked up a win in the 100 breast and Thomas Stephens won the 100 free. Other winners included veterans Rob Andrews (200 free), Curtis Lovelace (100 IM), Matthew Swanston (100 fly) and Aaron Wayne (50 fly). Stanford also swept both relays, the 200 medley and the 200 free relays.

"Things are going really good," Stanford senior David Mosko said. "The freshmen are keeping the upperclassmen honest. They are really pushing and challenging us. We are really focused early on."
