Stanford men hang onto second in Pac-12 swimming meet

Stanford remains in second place heading into the final day of the Pac-12 Conference Men's Swimming Championships, trailing Cal, 545-471, after Friday's action at King County Aquatic Center.

The event wraps up Saturday with preliminary events beginning at 11 a.m. (PT) before finals in the 1,650 free, 200 back, 100 free, 200 breast, 200 fly and 400 free relay start at 4 p.m.

Stanford's Max Williamson rounded out the podium in the 400 IM with a 3:44.47 for third. Finishing eighth in the finals was Drew Cosgarea, who came through in 3:52.92.

The 100 fly saw Stanford's Connor Black tag in with a 46.61 for sixth, and Thomas Stephens' 1:35.41 placed him eighth in the 200 free. Sacred Heart Prep grad Tom Kremer was one spot behind in 1:34.36.

Stanford's Mason Shaw went through the 100 breast in 53.31 for fifth-place points, and Daniel Le was 13th in 53.94.

The individual events concluded when Cal's Ryan Murphy out-stretched Stanford's David Nolan in the 100 back, denying Nolan of a second consecutive title in the event. Murphy swam an NCAA A-cut 45.59, as Nolan placed second with an A-cut time in 45.66.

Nolan, Shaw, Black and Kremer took home bronze honors for the Cardinal with a 3:09.10 in the 400 medley relay to shut the door on the evening.
