Weitzeil set a Cal dual-meet record and a Stanford-pool record in the 50-yard freestyle, winning with a time of 22.04 in a dual meet at Stanford. She also helped the Golden Bears’ 200-yard freestyle relay to a Cal-dual meet and Stanford-pool record, winning in 1:28.36. Her time of 48.78 in the 100-yard freestyle was her fastest in a dual meet this season.
