Cal's Catherine Breed placed fourth in the 500 freestyle. Marisa DeWames captured the 50-yard freestyle and led off San Jose State's victorious 200 freestyle relay as the Spartans moved within four points of first-place Northern Arizona at the halfway point of the WAC women's swimming and diving championships in San Antonio.
No. 16 Cal (5-5) rallied against No. 48 San Diego State (8-3) after losing the doubles point but ultimately fell 4-3 to the host Aztecs in men's tennis. Cal's Ben McLachlan beat Derek Siddiqui 6-4, 6-1 at No. 1 singles.
