Cal is going up against Texas at the NCAA Championships in March, but first, they’ll take on the rest of the Pac-12 at the conference championships.
Senior helped lead Cal to dual-meet win over Stanford On Feb. 19.
Reece Whitley won two events as Cal beat Stanford despite temperatures in the 50’s as both schools wrapped up their regular season.
Daniel Carr (21.70), Reece Whitley (24.25), Ryan Hoffer (20.03), and Bjorn Seeliger (18.64) teamed up to clock a 1:24.64 in the 200 medley relay.
Ryan Hoffer then split a scorching 18.55 on the 2nd leg, with Nate Biondi (19.26) and Bryce Mefford (19.58) bringing the squad home.
The Texas men lead all teams with six swimmers hitting automatic qualifying times so far this year, and the Texas women have four swimmers locked in.
Nathan Adrian made an appearance at the meet, swimming the men’s LCM 50 and 100 free.
It’s a runaway in the men’s Pac-12, where a late transfer probably only expanded a massive Cal lead in votes for the preseason favorite.
In the men’s 100 free, several 48’s might not make it to the semifinals. And a 47 might not even make the final!
Cal’s class of rising seniors – led by sprinter Ryan Hoffer – is an elite group. But so are Stanford’s incoming freshmen, including flyer Andrei Minakov.
