Los Angeles - The fifth-ranked California women's swimming team cruised to a 202-98 Pac-10 dual meet victory over USC on Friday afternoon, improving to 4-1 overall and 3-1 in conference action.

Cal dominated the freestyle events, capturing sweeps in the 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1000. Senior Emily Silver took first place in the 50 free with a time of 23.07, followed by teammates Madison Kennedy (23.10) and Hannah Wilson (23.45).
