BERKELEY, Calif. – Fifth-ranked Stanford women's swimming and diving swept both relays to defeat No. 8 California, 167-133 at the Spieker Aquatics Center. The Cardinal have won six of the last seven meetings against their Bay Area rival.

The freshman was joined by Allie Raab, Emma Wheal and Anya Goeders on the winning medley relay team, as the Cardinal set the tone early with a 56th-hundreds of a second victory.

Stanford closed out the meet with a decisive victory in the 400 free relay from Wheal, Taylor Ruck, Amy Tang and Torri Huske – 3:16.13 to 3:17.42. Huske also won the 50 free (22.28) and the 100 fly (51.92).
