FEDERAL WAY, Wash. – Stanford sits in second place after Day 2 of the Pac-12 Championships at the King County Aquatic Center.

"Credit Matthew Hirschberger for a strong time in the 500 which will get him to NCAA's," said the Goldman Family Director of Men's Swimming Ted Knapp. "It was another solid performance for us with a lot of times in the 500 free and 200-yard individual medley which will reflect on our program top times list."

Three Cardinal earned places in the 500-yard freestyle A-final with Hirschberger (4:15.51) leading the way in sixth place. James Murphy (4:15.89) finished seventh while Johannes Calloni placed eighth (4:17.83), and Jack Levant (4:14.21) won the B-final with True Sweetser (4:17.50) placing third in the heat. Hirschberger, Murphy, Levant and Sweetser each dropped time from their preliminary swims.

Stanford added three more A-finalists in the 200-yard individual medley, led by Abrahm DeVine (1:42.77), who finished third. Brennan Pastorek (1:44.00) placed seventh, Alex Liang (1:44.02) finished eighth, Benjamin Ho (1:45.14) finished third in the B-final and Will Macmillan (1:45.37) was fifth in the B-heat. All three of Stanford's A-finalists dropped time from their morning times.

Brad Zdroik (19.75) was the Cardinal's lone representative in the 50-yard freestyle A-final, placing eighth, with Cole Cogswell (19.71) slashing time from his preliminary time to place third in the B-final.

The Cardinal's team of DeVine, Zdroik, Cogswell and Mason Gonzalez (1:17.50) finished the evening with a fourth-place finish in the 200-yard freestyle relay.

The Cardinal sits in second place with 308 points behind Cal (342) and ahead of Arizona State (248), Arizona (223), USC (176) and Utah (169). Point totals include points scored from last week's Pac-12 diving championships.
