Cal senior Andrew Seliskar won his 11th Pac-12 title on Saturday evening in Federal Way, Washington. That breaks both Cal’s school record and the Pac-12 Conference reecord for most individual conference titles by a male swimmer since the conference began holding a championship in 1961.
Tom Shields previously won 8 titles from 2010-2013 to hold the school record, while John Naber’s 9 from 1974-1976 is the most we could find in the Pac-12 Record books (though some of Nabers’ wins came in a split conference meet). Ironically Pac-12 great Pablo Morales, who holds the NCAA record for most individual titles with 11, won far more national titles than conference titles (3).
The swim also tied Stanford’s Jenny Thompson for the most by a male or female swimmer.
Seliskar’s record-setting weekend included new Conference Championship Records in both the 200 free (1:31.07) and 200 breast (1:49.80), and was part of a 15-win meet for the Cal Golden Bears. That included a sweep of the event titles on the final day of competition.
Cal beat the runners-up Stanford by 232 points, which is the largest margin of victory at the meet since 2007 when Stanford beat Cal by 333.5.
As for their arch-rivals from Stanford? The Cardinal didn’t win a single swimming title at the meet, earning their only win from Conor Vasey on the men’s 3-meter.
