Cal Defeats Arizona State, 166-128

Jan. 24, 2004

Berkeley, Calif. - Inspired by senior Jeff Natalizio's electric guitar rendition of the national anthem, fellow seniors Alex Lim, Renato Gueraldi, and Steve Rehrmann, Keith Vogelgesang led their team to a 166-128 victory in their last home meet. With the win over the No. 13 Sun Devils, the No. 4 Golden Bears improve to 4-0.

Natalizio won the 100 breaststroke (1:03.10) and the 200 breaststroke (2:14.46). Among other strong senior performances: Lim finished first in both the 100 backstroke (54.88) and 200 backstroke (1:56.99); Rehrmann finished second (8:24.94) to fellow Golden Bear sophomore Ryan Lean (8:11.64) in the 800 freestyle; Gueraldi finished second (22.21) in the 50 freestyle to teammate and junior Duje Draganja (21.87).

California swept the 100 freestyle with a top finish by Draganja (48.18), second-place finish by freshman Rolandas Gimbutis (49.55), and a third-place finish by freshman Jonas Tilly (49.73). Other individual event winners included sophomore Milorad Cavic in the 200 butterfly (1:57.79). In all, Golden Bears took first place in ten of eleven individual events.

In the relays, Cal split with Arizona State. In the 200 medley relay, Cal's A team (Lim, junior Caleb Rowe, Cavic, Draganja) and B team (Natalizio, sophomore Ricky Barbosa, Tilly, Gimbutis) took first (1:39.04) and second (1:39.50), respectively.

Cal was, however, swept on the diving boards where Sun Devil Joona Puhakka finished first in the one and three meter events.

The Golden Bears next action comes Feb. 5 at Cal State Bakersfield before they venture further south to USC Feb. 6.
