TUCSON, Ariz. - Two road meets in two days.
Two wins 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.
"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," Goldman Family Director of Men's Swimming Ted Knapp said. "Our diving at both meets this weekend was very solid."
David Nolan, Andrew Saeta, Jack Lane and Aaron Wayne got Stanford going with a win in the 200 medley relay (1:27.21).
One race later, Drew Cosgarea (9:20.09) won the 1,000 free with Danny Thomson (9:29.01) and Bryan Offutt (9:31.47) claiming the next two spots.
Thomas Stephens (1:39.08) won the 200 free and Nolan (47.92) kept the winning streak alive in the 100 back.
Arizona got one back in the 100 breast, as Mason Shaw (56.88) led all Cardinal swimmers with a fourth-place showing. Shaw (2:06.96) was also fifth in the 200 breast.
Back came Stanford in the 200 fly, as Mack Montgomery (1:48.55) was joined by Lane (1:49.04) and Tom Kremer (1:49.42) for a 1-2-3 finish.
The Cardinal duplicated the feat in the 50 free with Wayne (20.32), Saeta (20.55) and Jake Hartley (20.95) topping the podium.
Wayne's second straight win came in the 100 free with a 43.58, over one second faster than second-place Giles Smith (44.93) of Arizona.
Matt Thompson (1:46.99) and Matthew Swanston (1:47.93) were the top two finishers in the 200 back.
Cosagrea (4:30.58) was the first of a trio of Cardinal to finish in the top three of the 500 free. Thomson (4:34.60) was second and Offutt (4:34.99) was third.
Lane (48.42) squeezed out a win in the 100 fly and Nolan (1:49.36) led all swimmers in the 200 individual medley.
Wayne, Saeta, Sean Duggan and Stephens clocked a meet-best 2:57.19 in the 400 free relay.
Kristian Ipsen was victorious in the 1-meter (391.28) and 3-meter (426.08) diving events.
Stanford returns to the water when it plays host to USC on Feb. 9.
