Like last year, the Bears will battle the Cardinal twice during the regular season. First, they have their triple distance meet in November. The regular dual meet action takes place in February.
Incoming freshman Ryan Hoffer is a huge addition for the Bears and will play a big role on the relays in addition to being a key player individually. He’s already fast enough to have scored big in both sprints at 2017 NCAAs.
Olympic champion Ryan Lochte will swim in his first final of a USA Swimming meet since the Rio incident.
Cal’s Matt Josa is the top seed for tonight’s 100 fly final.
The men’s 100 fly is one of the most anticipated races of the meet with a loaded field that includes Jack Conger, Tom Shields, Caeleb Dressel, and Tim Phillips. Read on for live updates from this morning’s action.
Jack Conger and Tom Shields headline a group of men in the 51-low range who could become the first swimmers other than Phelps to break 51 seconds since the end of the supersuit era.
With Phelps and Lochte out of the picture, we’ll likely see a pair of fresh faces representing the red, white, and blue in this event.
Top seed Kelsi Worrell has scratched out of the 200 fly final after clocking a quick 2:09.37 to top the heats.
It’s been a nightmare of a week for California. Junior Connor Hoppe was disqualified out of heats of the 200 breaststroke Saturday morning, marking a third DQ of a scoring swimmer for Cal in this meet.

This morning’s 200 medley relay was fast enough that very few teams will have alternate lineup options tonight, perhaps in response to a few high-profile miscues in prelims of the 400 medley.
Tonight brings competition in the 200 free relay, 500 free, 200 IM, 50 free, 1-meter diving, and 400 medley relay.
Though they finished 2nd to Texas, the Bears took down the American Record in a blistering 3:01.51. That took down the former American Record mark of 3:01.60 set by Cal at the 2015 NCAA Meet.
NC State will look to build off their momentum from last night’s fantastic relay performance.
A big blow to Cal: Matt Josa was disqualified out of prelims of the 200 IM after going a 1:41.50 that would have qualified him 6th for tonight’s final.
