Two road meets in two days.

Two victories for the ninth-ranked Stanford men's swimming and diving team.

The latter of which came Saturday against No. 1 Arizona 173-115 at the Wildcats' Hillenbrand Aquatic Center in Tucson.

"We took away many positives from today's meet, mostly the great racing in both individual and relay events while showing some very good depth," Stanford coach Ted Knapp said. "Our diving at both meets this weekend was very solid."

David Nolan, Andrew Saeta, Jack Lane and Aaron Wayne got the Cardinal going with a win in the 200-yard medley relay. Wayne also won the 50 and 100 freestyle events and was part of the victorious 400 freestyle relay team.

Olympian Kristian Ipsen captured the 1- and 3-meter diving events.
