Arizona State’s Barkley Perry broke the monopoly with his fifth-place swim, but Stanford sophomore Jimmy Yoder (4:27.95) and senior Drew Cosgarea (4:28.55) swam the sixth- and seventh-best times of the prelims.

Senior Dave Nolan led the Cardinal dominance in the 200 individual medley, swimming a 1:44.90 in the prelims.
