The women’s 400-yard medley relay record has been around since 2016, or at least had been.

Two Pac-12 teams broke the previous mark on Friday.

The Stanford women’s 400 medley relay won  in an NCAA-record 3:25.15 shattering the previous mark of 3:26.14.

Ally Howe, Kim Williams, Janet Hu and Simone Manuel won the event, bettering their prelims time by four seconds.

Cal’s Kathleen Baker, Ali Harrison, Noemie Thomas and Abbey Weitzeil were second in 3:25.50, also bettering the previous NCAA record set by Stanford in 2016.
