The four-time defending champion Cal Bears are likely to meet their stiffest Pac-12 challenge in some time this season with ASU and Stanford.
George Washington University sophomore Djurdje Matic posted a 45.72 100 fly to clear both the GW team record and last year’s NCAA invite time.
UNLV junior Panos Bolanos (above) won three individual events as the Rebels topped Utah for the first time in over 20 years.
The University of Utah set a pair of pool records and won all but two events on their way to a sweep of Division II Colorado Mesa University.
Cal’s Ryan Hoffer is chasing his 2nd title of the meet in the 100 fly against top seed Cody Bybee of ASU and teammate Zheng Quah, the defending champion.
ASU’s Zach Poti is the defending Pac-12 Champion in the men’s 100 back and tied his lifetime best on Wednesday night’s 400 medley relay.
The Utah men were dominant in their home meet with rival USC. The Utes won 12 of the 14 events, setting multiple Pool Records.
Utes went at least 1-2-3 in 5 individual events. The best performance from a team perspective came in the women’s 100 breast, where Utah took the top 4 spots
The UC Santa Barbara men’s swim team won its first meet of the year by a score of 150.5-111.5 against Pac-12 opponent Utah on Friday afternoon at Campus Pool.
Utah captured 13 of the 16 events en route to a commanding win over BYU at the season-opening exhibition Utah Relays on Friday.
Last year’s NMAA champions, Eldorado, are seeded 5th when the meet is scored out, and while La Cueva looks strong with a 28-point lead heading to the meet, there will be lots of competition among the other teams, with second through fourth places separated by a mere 12 points. All in all, this should be an entertaining meet, and relatively fast for New Mexico as a state and the NMAA.
