    Freshman Hannah Weiss posted USC's fastest 100y back since 2011 and helped Troy to a win in the 200y medley relay to highlight the Trojans on the second night of the UT Invitational at the Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center on Friday (Dec. 5) in Austin.

    Weiss took second in the 100y back in 52.23, 0.17 out of first and 0.26 from an NCAA `A' cut. It was USC's fastest 100y back since Presley Bard set the school record (51.62) at the 2011 NCAA Championships.

    Earlier in the night, Weiss led off USC's 200y medley relay and joined senior Andrea Kropp and juniors Kendyl Stewart and Kasia Wilk as the quartet dropped an NCAA `A' cut of 1:37.11 and won by 0.57.

    The men's 200y medley relay took third as senior Luca Spinazzola, junior Morten Klarskov, sophomore Dylan Carter and freshman Ralf Tribuntsov went 1:26.12, 0.04 off an `A' cut.

    Sophomore Maggie D'Innocenzo took fourth in the 400y IM in 4:15.15, a season best and `B' cut. Senior Cary Wright was USC's top finisher in the men's 400y IM. After going 3:53.03 (B) in the prelims, he went 3:53.54 for 14th overall.



    Junior Joanna Stenkvist tied for first in the `B' final of the 200y free in 1:48.00, 0.01 off a `B' cut. Carter was the second seed out of prelims of the 200y free with a season-best 1:34.05, but he did not swim in the final.

    Kropp was third in the 100y breast in 1:00.01, a PR and a strong NCAA `B' cut, after going 1:00.06 in prelims. Junior Jasmine Tosky posted a `B' cut of 1:02.16 in the B final. Klarskov also posted a `B' cut in the C final on the men's side in 54.63.

    Troy sent two swimmers to the men's 100y back final as Tribuntsov took third (46.44) with Carter taking fifth (46.90).

    USC's women's 800y free relay was third in 7:14.81 with Tosky, Stewart, Wilk and Stenkvist. Tosky's lead-off 1:47.18 a season-best.

    The men's 800y free relay of Carter, sophomore Reed Malone, senior Chad Bobrosky and sophomore Michael Domagala took fourth with a 6:29.13.
