    Fourth-Ranked USC Defeats No. 10 UCLA in Final Home Meet

    LOS ANGELES - Behind three wins from senior Kristine Quance and two wins from freshman Jamie Johnson, the No. 4 USC women's swimming team defeated No. 10 UCLA 198-102 at the USC McDonald's Swim Stadium.

    The Women of Troy improved to 8-1 overall, 4-1 in the Pac-10. UCLA fell to 6-3, 2-3.

    Quance, who prepped at Granada Hills High, won the 100 (1:02.22) and 200 breaststrokes (2:13.00) and the 200 IM (2:00.95), setting season bests in all three events. All are also NCAA qualifying times, giving her a total of five events in which she has posted automatic qualifying times.

    Johnson won the 500 free (4:53.59) and the 1650 free (16:41.49).

    UCLA was led by freshman Keiko Price, who won the 50 (23.26) and the 100 free (51.05). Those were UCLA's only wins of the meet.

    Other highlights included USC junior Jean Ellis Todisco winning the 200 fly in 1:59.00, an automatic qualifying time, and USC divers sweeping the 1-meter (Dorte Lindner) and the 3-meter (Natasha Chikina) events.
