SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Former Cal swimmer Natalie Coughlin headlined the women's events at the 37th annual Santa Clara International Meet last weekend. Coughlin broke her meet record in the 100-meter freestyle at 54.77.

In addition, she swept the 100-meter backstroke (1:00.55) and 200- meter backstroke (2:12.29). Several other current and former Golden Bears competed as well.
