The Golden Bears are looking to win a third straight NCAA team title after snapping Stanford's streak of 31 straight conference titles on March 6 in Federal Way, Wash. Cal was the last school to win the conference meet in 1980 and 1981. The Bears, undefeated in dual meets this year, topped Stanford (139-104) for the first time since 2005 and return 12 members from its 2012 national championship squad, including last year's individual NCAA champs Tom Shields (100 fly and 100 back), Will Hamilton (200 fly) and Marcin Tarczynski (200 IM). Additionally, Cal returns four members from its national champion relays -Shields, junior Shayne Fleming, sophomores Fabio Gimondi and Seth Stubblefield . Senior Shields is a nine-time NCAA champion (either individually or on relays), winning the 100 fly as a freshman, the100 back title as a sophomore, and the 100 fly and 100 back as a junior. He was the 2010 Pac-10 Freshman of the Year, the 2011 and 2013 Pac-12 Swimmer of the Meet and the 2012 NCAA Swimmer of the Meet. Shields is also the school record-holder in the 200 free (1:32.75), 100 back (44.86), 100 fly (44.76) and 200 fly (1:40.31). Sophomore Hamilton is the school record-holder in the 500 free (4:15.04) as well as winning the national title in the 200 fly as a freshman. Junior Tarczynski is the school record-holder in the 200 IM (1:41.97).

Golden Bears Gear Up For The NCAAs
Shields (Huntington Beach, Calif.) is seeded first in the 100 fly (44.92), second in the 200 fly (1:41.23) and ninth in the 100 back (46.12) after winning all three of those events at the 2013 Pac-12 meet. Other top seedings for Cal include freshman Josh Prenot, seeded fourth (3:41.36) and Pac-12 champ in the 400 IM; Hamilton, seeded fifth (1:42.75) in the 200 fly; senior Jacob Pebley, seeded fifth in the 200 back (1:40.45) and Tarczynski, seeded sixth (1:43.10) in the 200 IM. The Bears' 200 medley relay (1:24.42, junior Tony Cox, Hoyt, Shields, Fleming) is seeded third and the 400 medley relay (3:06.09, Cox, Hoyt, Shields, Stubblefield or Gimondi) is seeded fourth. Additionally, Cal won 2013 Pac-12 titles in both the 200 and 400 medley relays.

2011-12 in Review
David Durden earned both the NCAA Coach of the Meet and Pac-12 Men's Swimming Coach of the Year for the third year in a row after the Bears repeated as NCAA champions in 2012, claiming the program's fourth overall title. Cal also won back-to-back crowns in 1979-80. The Bears won four individual events and two relays to finish with 535.5 points to second-place Texas' 491 points. Besides individual titles from Shields, Tarczynski and Hamilton, Cal's 200 free relay (1:16.58 - Tyler Messerschmidt, Fleming, Gimondi, Stubblefield) and 400 medley relay (3:03.24 - Mathias Gydesen, Nolan Koon, Shields, Messerschmidt) also captured national crowns.
