BERKELEY – Five pool records were either broken or tied Friday afternoon as California bested rival Stanford, 167.5-130.5, at Spieker Aquatics Complex in the two squads' final dual meet of the 2021 season.
The foursome of Daniel Carr, Reece Whitley, Bryce Mefford and Björn Seeliger kicked off the meet with a 1:24.38 finish in the 200 medley relay, shaving 0.24 seconds off the previous mark that was set less than a month ago on Jan. 30 against USC.
Trenton Julian set a pair of individual pool records with finishes of 1:33.53 in the 200 free and 4:14.08 in the 500 free. The two times rank as the ninth and eighth fastest times in the nation, respectively. Zach Yeadon additionally set a pool record in the 1000 free at 8:49.88 while fellow senior Bryce Mefford tied former Cal standout Andrew Seliskar for the pool record in the 200 IM with a 1:44.07 victory.
Additional individual wins by Cal came in the 100 back (Daniel Carr, 45.61), 100 breast (Reece Whitley, 52.89), 50 free (Ryan Hoffer, 19.07) and 200 back (Destin Lasco, 1:40.35).
Cal capped the impressive dual with a win in the 400 free relay. Seeliger, Hoffer Julian and Lasco covered the relay in 2:51.11.
It was the Bears' 14th consecutive dual-meet win dating back to Oct. 3, 2018. Cal finished 2-0 in the shortened 2021 dual-meet season.
