Friday night will feature finals for the 400 IM, 100 fly, 200 free, 100 breast, 100 back, and 200 medley relay.
Five teams are within 16 and a half points of one another for the NCAA crown at the moment, with today’s meet-high 7-event prelims session holding perhaps the most valuable key to securing a team championship.
Cal could swap Justin Lynch to fly on the 400 medley relay, throwing in Ryan Hoffer or Michael Jensen as they seek to run down Indiana for the NCAA title.
There are several men in contention for the title. Four of them are Longhorns. Austin Katz is the top seed, but Harvard’s Dean Farris has also been sub-1:39 this season.
A fully healthy and on-form Shebat would be a slight favorite to win this race, but with questions looming about his injury, it brings him back to the field.
Cal’s Andrew Seliskar, who won the 200 fly last season, is changing things up this time around as he’ll battle for a title in the 200 breast.
The 4th day of the meet includes the 200 back, 100 free, 200 breast, 200 fly, 1650, and 400 free relay.
Arizona State’s Cameron Craig looks to repeat as Pac-12 Champion in the 200 free. He’s the top seed for tonight’s final.
Day 3 of the meet will feature the 400 IM, 100 fly, 200 free, 100 breast, and 100 back. Cameron Craig will look to defend his 200 free title and meet record.
Ryan Hoffer and the Cal Bears got off to a fast start as they dominated the 200 medley relay, but Arizona’s Chatham Dobbs had a strong showing with a 19.74 fly split to help the Wildcats to silver.
After repeating as champions last season, the Stanford Cardinal is in the hunt for a threepeat, but the Cal Bears won’t make it easy.
The Utes capped off their season with a victory over the Trojan men, who were without All-Americans Carter, Condorelli, Mulcare, and Tribuntsov.
The Stanford men remain undefeated in dual meet action after winning a nailbiter on the road against Pac-12 rival USC on Saturday.
After a semester abroad in Australia, USC junior Carsten Vissering made his return to NCAA swimming with a very strong 100 breast in USC’s Monday dual with the visiting Wisconsin Badgers.
It’s a dead heat at the top of our men’s rankings. Ryan Hoffer and Cal hold top time in the nation in 4 relays. But after a stellar Texas Invite, did the three-time defending champs run them down for the top spot?
