Complete Results

FEDERAL WAY, Wash. - Fourth-ranked California recorded two NCAA automatic qualifying times and five NCAA B qualifying times on Saturday night and won the Husky Invitational at the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center with 1442 points. The Golden Bears, who won three event finals on the last day of the meet, edged second-place USC by 127 points.

Among Cal's Saturday victories was sophomore Nathan Adrian's in the 100-yard freestyle. The 2008 U.S. Olympic gold medalist became the fourth-fastest 100 freestyler in Cal history with his NCAA A time of 41.83. The Bears ended the meet by winning the 400-yard freestyle relay in an automatic qualifying time of 2:50.15, making the quartet of sophomore Graeme Moore, Adrian, sophomore Josh Daniels and senior Bennett Clark the fourth-fastest 400-free relay in school history.

In the 100-free final, Adrian bested the second-place finisher - Moore - by 1.41 seconds. Adrian's 41.83 tied the time that 2008 U.S. Olympic teammate Ian Crocker swam in 2006 as the fourth-fastest American time in the 100 free.

A product of Bremerton, Wash., Adrian had an outstanding meet, including winning the 50 free in a Cal-record 18.94 on Thursday night. The 18.94 is the second-fastest 50-free American time in history, just behind the 18.87 that Stanford's Ben Wildman-Tobriner set at the 2007 NCAA Championships. Earlier on Thursday, Adrian swam a blistering 19.04 50 free to lead off Cal's winning 200-free relay that won with an automatic NCAA qualifying time of 1:17.62.

On Saturday, Moore, who swam an NCAA B qualifying time of 43.24 in the 100 free, bettered that with a B qualifying time of 43.17 to lead off Cal's winning 400-free relay.

Bears junior Sean Mahoney won the 200-yard breaststroke final in an NCAA B qualifying time of 1:55.68. Cal's best placement in the 200 backstroke was junior Aaron Casey's sixth-place finish in 1:48.68, though Bears senior David Russell won the consolation final and took ninth place in the 200 back with an NCAA B qualifying time of 1:44.21.

Cal next competes on Jan. 23, 2009, in a Pac-10 dual meet against Arizona in Tucson, Ariz.
