Cal Men's Swimming and Diving Facebook

No.2 Cal Bears overcame Stanfurd's big edge from diving to claim the Pac-12 Swimming and Diving title for the second consecutive year. STROKE ON YOU BEARS!

Just like the No.1 Cal women, No.2 Cal men's swimming and diving are now Pac-12 Champions. Water is Bear Territory!

To watch the Cal's win, you have to wait until March 10 at 7:30 PM PT for the Pac-12 Networks tape delayed coverage. Calympian Nathan Adrian will serve as the swimming color commentator.

Final Standings:

1. Univ of California, Berkeley 786
2. Stanford University 661
3. University of Southern Calif 621
4. Arizona, Universiy of 596.5
5. Utah, University of 306
6. Arizona State University 287
7. U C, Santa Barbara 178.5
8. Cal Poly 157

Also like the Cal women, the men suffered a relay DQ, although this one came at the very end when the Bears have already secured the team title. The top seed 400 free relay team did miss out on the chance to be Pac-12 champions, however.

Overall, the Bears actually did not claim that many Pac-12 titles.
