FEDERAL WAY, Wash. -- Cal's women's swimming and diving team didn't waste any time getting going at the 2005 Pac-10 Championships Wednesday. In the second and final event of the night, the Golden Bears took first in the 800-yard freestyle relay at King County Aquatics Center, successfully defending their title in that race.

The team of junior Ashley Chandler, sophomore Erin Reilly, freshman Emily Silver and senior Lauren Medina clocked an NCAA automatic qualifying time of 7:08.37. Chandler, Reilly and Medina swam on last year's winning 800 free relay team that set the current Pac-10 record of 7:08.13.

Cal sits in second place after two events with 114 points. First-place Stanford leads with 120. Arizona is in third with 110 points.

'Anytime you win a Pac-10 championship, it's great,' said Cal assistant Whitney Hite. 'We swam well. We went 7:08 the hard way, but it puts us in perfect position for NCAAs, which is the most important thing.'

In the first event of the meet, Cal took fifth in the 200 medley relay. The team of sophomore Sherry Tsai, freshman Genevieve Patterson, senior Emma Palsson and Silver placed fifth in an NCAA automatic qualifying mark of 1:40.98.

Thursday opens with preliminaries of the 500 freestyle, 200 IM, 50 freestyle and 1-meter diving. The morning session begins at 11 a.m. Finals of these events follow in the evening session at 6 p.m., which also includes the 200 freestyle relay final.
