STANFORD, Calif. - The sixth-ranked California men's swimming and diving team took on rival and third-ranked Stanford in the Cardinal's annual Triple-Distance Meet on Wednesday at the Avery Aquatic Center. The Golden Bears won six events, with sophomore Damir Dugonjic claiming the 50- and 100-yard breaststrokes, senior Bennett Clark taking the 100 freestyle, freshman Martin Liivamagi placing first in the 100 individual medley, sophomore Thomas Henninger edging a Cardinal diver for the top spot in the three-meter springboard and the Cal A group of Clark, junior Josh Daniels, sophomore Graeme Moore and sophomore Nick Cordes winning the 200-freestyle relay.

While not scored like a conventional dual meet, Stanford swimmers had the best combined times in the six individually contested swimming disciplines: sprint freestyle, butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, individual medley and distance freestyle. The two rivals split the relays (200 free and 200 medley) as well as the diving events.

Dugonjic, a 2008 Slovenian Olympian, posted a time of 25.15 in the 50 breaststroke and 55.00 in the 100 breaststroke but was disqualified in the 200 event. Liivamagi, a 2008 Estonian Olympian, was first in the 100 IM in 50.69, second in the 200 IM (1:50.59) and third in the 400 IM (4:01.53).

Clark won the 100 free in 44.75 and took second in both the 50 (20.76) and 200 (1:42.45) freestyles behind Stanford's Austin Staab.

Cal's 200-free relay swam a 1:21.72 to defeat Stanford's relay (1:23.02). The Bears (sophomore Guy Barnea, Dugonjic, Liivamagi and freshman Nolan Koon) were second in the 200-medley relay with a time of 1:30.86 to the Stanford's A relay's 1:29.91.

In diving, Henninger posted a score of 314.85 to edge Stanford's Brent Eichenesser, who had a 314.62. Henninger was also second (267.82) on the one-meter board.

The Bears next compete in the Husky Invitational Dec. 4-6 at the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way, Wash.
