Cal made waves in all of the individual events tonight, along with a win in the 200 free relay. But Texas’s divers did their job, their top divers Jordan Windle and Noah Duperre going 1-2 and keeping the Longhorns close in the title chase. The Longhorns also claimed the 400 medley relay title, giving them momentum heading into day three.

Cal out-performed their day two psych sheet projections by 44 points, and they hold a 27-point lead over Texas going into the third day of this meet. Freshman Destin Lasco going from a 50+ seed to finishing third in the 200 IM was a huge gain for Cal.

Florida, meanwhile, is behind Texas in third at 161 points. NC State gained 24 points on psych projections, and they’re in sixth, just a single point behind Texas A&M. Virginia and Florida State also out-performed what they had on paper.

Ohio State was way off of their psych projected day two total, behind by over 50 points, while Louisville was also off (by 21.5).

Looking down to the full data at the bottom, Cal is holding onto the lead by a projected 31.5 points. The Bears have a weak day on paper tomorrow, but they have a big day four set-up.
