LONG BEACH, Calif. - Fifth-ranked California swam four NCAA B qualifying times on Friday night as the Arena Invitational moved into its second day at the Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool. The Golden Bears moved up four spots in the standings to No. 2 with 553 points, trailing only top-ranked Stanford (1144 points).

The Cal A squad of freshman Cindy Tran, sophomore Caitlin Leverenz, senior Amanda Sims and junior Liv Jensen posted an NCAA B time of 1:40.30 by taking third place in the 200-yard medley relay championship final.

The Bears collected two more third-place finishes in the 400-yard individual medley, as Leverenz swam an NCAA B time of 4:09.36, and in the 100-yard butterfly, as Sims collected an NCAA B time of 53.43.

"Amanda Sims did a nice job in the 100 fly and Caitlin Leverenz raced hard in the 400 IM," Cal head coach Teri McKeever said. "As a coach, I'm getting a better sense of what we need to work on with our individual swimmers and as a team."

Tran claimed Cal's fourth NCAA B time of the night, swimming a time of 54.70 to finish fifth in the 100 backstroke.

In the 200 free, Jensen, normally a sprinter, placed eighth with a time of 1:49.91. Freshman Melissa Bates produced Cal's best finish in the 100 breaststroke, taking 19th in 1:03.64.

Cal's quartet of Leverenz, freshman Samantha Shellem, freshman Nathalie Lindborg and Jensen closed the night by taking fourth place in the 800-free relay in a time of 7:23.91.

The Arena Invitational ends on Saturday.
