LOS ANGELES - Senior Andrea Reigel, junior Ting Quah, sophomore Emma Ivory-Ganja, freshman Megan Rankin and the 200 Freestyle Relay team all won events on Saturday at #1 USC, but the 12th-ranked Bruins fell to the Trojans 167.5-132.5.

The Trojans began the meet with a 1-2 finish in the 200 Medley Relay, and also won the 1650 Freestyle, but the Bruins posted a 2-3-4 placing in the event behind junior Lauren Baker (16:28.32), Rankin (16:29.59) and freshman Katy Campbell (16:47.30).

Quah followed that with a win in the 200 Freestyle in a time of 1:46.36. It was a career best for the junior, who swam the second-fastest mark in UCLA history. Only Alex Sullivan in 2011 swam a better time (1:45.55).

The Trojans took the next race, the 100 Backstroke, but the Bruins claimed the next two spots, as Reigel (54.09) finished second, tying a personal best, and freshman Katie Kinnear (55.05) was third. USC then placed 1-2 in the 100 Breaststroke.

Prior to the first break, the Trojans also won the 200 Butterfly and the 50 Free. In the 200 Fly, the Bruins finished 2-3-4 behind sophomore Noelle Tarazona (1:57.20), senior Stephanie Christofferson (career-best 1:57.59) and sophomore Kacey Milligan (1:59.74). Junior Kathryn Murphy placed second in the 50 Free in a time of 22.98.

The first diving event went to the Bruins, as Ivory-Ganja posted a score of 340.05 in the Three-Meter. After the break, USC took the 100 Free, as Quah was just out-touched at 49.37. Murphy was third in a time of 50.28.

Reigel would win the next event, the 200 Back, in a time of 1:56.67, nearly two seconds clear of the next competitor. The Trojans bounced back with a 1-2 showing in the 200 Breaststroke.

UCLA got back on the winning track in the 500 Freestyle, as Rankin swam a time of 4:47.00, with Milligan finishing third (4:50.41) and senior Briana Meyer placing fourth (4:53.49). The Trojans would win the next three events though, the 100 Butterfly, the One-Meter Diving and the 400 Individual Medley.

In the 100 Fly, Quah was second in a time of 52.93, which was the third-fastest time in school history.

The Bruins concluded the meet with a relay win in the 200 Freestyle, setting a school record in the process. Murphy, Quah, Kinnear and sophomore Jessica Khojasteh swam 1:30.16, besting the mark of 1:30.43 set last year.

The Bruins now head to the Pac-12 Championships, which run from Feb. 27-March 2 in Federal Way, Wash.
