Mesa men's swim dominated the swimming competition on Friday afternoon. The Olympians couldn't have opened the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference swimming and diving season any better. They tore through wins in 12 out of 14 events, and have pushed their dual meet record to a perfect 5-0 including last year's 4-0 PCAC dual meet championship season. Mesa outscored Grossmont 170-92 in swimming, after dropping two diving events, and finished with a 180-120 victory. Defending 200 IM State Champion Neil Franka won the 200 Fly and 200 Back, and also the 100 fly. He also contributed to a win in the 200 Medley Relay. Brandon Crabtree scored wins in the 50 and 100 free, and the 200 Medley and 200 Free relays. John Horne also won 4 events. Mesa is 1-0 in PCAC meets. They compete this weekend at the Mt. SAC invitational.
