Trojans In Third After Pac-12 Championships Opening Night|
March 1, 2017
Junior Dylan Carter turned in a PR 200y free opening leg of the 800y free relay and almost set a record over the distance to highlight the Trojans’ two relays on the first night of the 2017 Pac-12 Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships in Federal Way, Wash., on Wednesday (March 1).
Cal won both races and leads after the two-event first night with 80 points and is followed by Stanford (66), USC and Arizona (62 apiece), Arizona State (52) and Utah (52).
Carter’s lead off swim of 1:32.15 was the fastest in the race, 0.01 ahead of ASU’s Cameron Craig. It lowered Carter’s best effort from 1:32.61 and came with 0.12 of Cristian Quintero’s 2015 school record.
The Trojans almost re-set their school record in the opening 200y medley relay as junior Ralf Tribuntsov, sophomores Carsten Vissering and Kyle Grissom and junior Santo Condorelli took fourth in 1:23.98, 0.08 off the school record.
The meet continues Thursday through Saturday with prelims at 11a.m. and finals at 6 p.m. each day.
