BERKELEY, CALIF. - The No. 6-ranked Cal men's swimming team won the first seven events and then swam the next four races as exhibition, defeating Cal State Bakersfield, 104-81, Saturday afternoon at Spieker Aquatics Complex. The Golden Bears, who had topped No. 23 USC, 157-130, on Friday, improved to 5-1 in dual meet competition. Cal will next conclude their 2008-09 regular season Saturday, Feb. 21 at 1 p.m. against Bay Area rival and No. 2-ranked Stanford at Spieker Aquatics Complex.

Sophomore Alex Cushing won two events for the Bears, winning both the 50 (20.72) and 100 free (45.91). Cal had three swimmers produced season-best times as well. Senior John Foster had a season-best time of 9:27.90 in the 1000 free, senior David Russell had a season-best 1:51.83 in the 200 fly and senior Ian Lentz had a season-best 1:50.55 in the 200 IM. Junior college transfer Peter Davis also placed first in the 200 free (1:40.57).

The Bears started the meet by capturing the 200 medley relay in a time of 1:31.13 (senior Bennett Clark, freshman Martin Liivamagi, freshman Kevin Nielsen, sophomore Graeme Moore). Swimming as exhibition, junior Aaron Casey had the fastest time in the 500 free (4:34.26) and sophomore Nick Ferrif had the best time in the 200 breast (2:03.09).

"We are content where we are right now," said second-year Cal coach David Durden, who will be looking to lead Cal to its first dual meet victory over Stanford since 2005 when the Bears won 129-114 in Berkeley. "We were really good and sharp. It was a nice weekend for us."
