No. 4 men’s swimming and diving upsets No. 1 Cal on Senior Day

At the end of the final race, the 200 free relay, in Avery Aquatic Center, few in the crowd knew what just happened. The Cardinal entered the event with a seven-point lead and an opportunity to upset the No.1 ranked team in the nation, but the Bears won the event, and two Cardinal swimmers came in second and third. After a few moments of hushed anxiety, the result was finally known. No. 4 Stanford men’s swimming and diving (6-0, 4-0 Pac-12) had upset No. 1 Cal (5-1, 4-1) 151-149 on Senior Day.
