STANFORD, CALIF. - The No. 7-ranked Cal men's swimming and diving team won four events against No. 3-ranked Stanford Wednesday at the non-counting Stanford "Triple-Distance" competition, held at the Avery Aquatic Center on the Stanford campus. Wednesday's meet was unofficial and will not count towards either team's dual-meet record.
