AUSTIN, Texas - California junior Jonas Tilly won the 100-yard freestyle and anchored the winning 400-yard freestyle relay as the Golden Bears took a 128-94 over host Texas and a 155-67 lead over Florida on Friday evening at the Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center. In the morning session of the tri-meet, Tilly won the 50-yard freestyle and anchored two relays wins as the Golden Bears won four out of the first six events. Overall, Cal has won eight of the tri-meet's 12 events.
