The Stanford women have yet to lose an event at the 2017 Pac-12 Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships. In a nailbiter finish against Cal, the Cardinal closed day 2 finals with a new Meet Record in the 200 free relay, just out-touching the Bears by .05.
Simone Manuel got the Cardinal off to a good start, taking the early lead with her 21.44. Teammates Lia Neal, Janet Hu, and Ally Howe followed as the Cardinal touched in a final time of 1:26.44, clearing the former Meet Record of 1:26.77, which they set at last season’s conference meet.
The Cal squad of Abbey Weitzeil, Amy Bilquist, Maddie Murphy, and Farida Osman were also under the previous record with a 1:26.49.
