GAINESVILLE, Fla. - After not winning the first two races of day one, Stanford Women's Swimming won nine of the next 11 to lead the field of three NCAA top-25 teams, posting a score of 133-to-110 over Florida and 164-to-79 over Michigan on the first of two days of competition in the Sunshine State.
