The Cal women just repeated to become national champions. Your turn men!

Here's how things went down in Day 1. Overall after the first day, Cal finished first at 157.5, Furd second at 140, Texas third at 128.5, Arizona fourth at 118.

The 2012 Cal men's swim team, looking to defend its 2011 NCAA team title, put on an impressive performance Thursday (March 22) and leads after the first day of the 2012 NCAA Men's Swimming and Diving Championships held at the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way, Wash. The Golden Bears' 200 free relay team - freshman Tyler Messerschmidt, sophomore Shayne Fleming, freshman Fabio Gimondi and freshman Seth Stubblefield - won the meet's opening event with a time of 1:16.58.

Cal also ended the first day with a relay victory, taking the national title in the 400 medley relay (3:03.24) behind the swims of senior Mathias Gydesen, senior Nolan Koon, junior Tom Shields and freshman Messerschmidt. It was the third year in-a-row the Bears have won the national title in the 400 medley relay.
