In a nailbiter finish against Cal, the Cardinal closed day 2 finals with a new Meet Record of 1:26.44 in the 200 free relay, just out-touching the Bears by .05.
A highly anticipated showdown between Stanford’s Simone Manuel and Cal teammates Abbey Weitzeil and Farida Osman will take place in tonight’s 50 free final.
One of the big swims to watch today, of course, is Katie Ledecky’s 500 free. The Pac-12 Record currently stands at a 4:31.90, but we may see her take that down in the heats.

Ledecky started off with a back-to-back double, winning the 1000 free in 9:20.41. She returned to the pool immediately after for the 200 free, putting up a blistering 1:43.09 to outpace teammate Simone Manuel (1:44.04).
