Junior Ema Rajic set a Cal record in the 100-yard breaststroke and posted the No. 2 time in school history in the 200 breast, as the Golden Bears took on Stanford for a second consecutive weekend in a non-scoring dual meet Saturday.

Ema Rajic covered the 100 breast in 58.93, just under her mark of 58.97 from the 2019 NCAA Championships. She also finished the 200 breast in 2:07.16 for a more than one-second improvement from her previous personal best, keeping her second in the Cal annals.

In addition, two other Bears posted improvements among Cal’s all-time best list. Sophomore Alicia Wilson lowered her PR in the 400 individual medley to 4:04.10, good for the No. 3 mark at Cal, while freshman Isabelle Stadden went 1:49.77 to win the 200 back. The time puts her in the No. 4 slot on the school’s all-time list in the event and is a 1.4-second improvement over her 200 back result from last weekend.

Several other Cal swimmers picked up racing wins during the day – freshman Emily Gantriis in the 50 free (22.14), junior Isabel Ivey in the 100 free (48.01), and sophomore Rachel Klinker in the 200 free (1:46.89) and 200 fly (1:55.80).
