LONG BEACH, Calif.-- Julia Smit broke the school-record in the 200 backstroke, posting a time of 1:52.83 as the Cardinal finished off the Toshiba Cup with five more wins on Saturday. It is her fourth individual school-record on The Farm.

Smit for the three-day meet won three events, today's backstroke, as well as the 200 and 400 individual medleys, all “A” standard times for the 19-time All-American. Smit broke Misty Hyman's 11-year old record of 1:53.12 in 1998 to finish off the weekend. She was also a part of three winning freestyle relay teams, the 200 and 800 earlier this week, and today, the 400 relay.

Smit anchored the winning 400 relay team, finishing with a “B” standard time of 3:17.28, teaming with Betsy Webb, Sam Woodward and Kate Dwelley for the win.

Dwelley led three Cardinal in the 100 freestyle with a best of 48.57, ahead of Webb (48.90) and Woodward (49.10), all “B” standard times.

Kelsey Ditto completed a solid showing in Long Beach by winning the 1650 freestyle with a “B” standard time of 16:12.25. It was Ditto's second individual win, as she set the meet record in the 500 on Thursday.
