Don't Miss Missy

| No Comments

No. 5 USC women's swimming and diving is hosting No. 1 Cal on Friday at 3 p.m. at the Uytengsu Aquatics Center.  Admission is FREE.  While the top five match-up is scintillating enough, Bears freshman Missy Franklin will be among those competing against the Trojans' 2012 Olympians. 

Franklin was one of the stars of the London Olympics raking in five medals including four golds.  In her first year in Berkeley, the teenage star has already set the NCAA's top 200y free time this year by more than two seconds (1:41.40) as well as the best 500y free (4:34.63) time.

The Trojans will counter with three Olympians of their own in All-American seniors Stina Gardell and Lynette Lim plus sophomore Kasia Wilk.  The Women of Troy are paced by All-American senior Kasey Carlson who is the top-ranked swimmer in the country in the 100y free (47.22) and second in the 100y breast (58.61).
