FEDERAL WAY, Wash. - With just one day of competition left, Stanford padded its lead in the evening session of the Pac-12 Conference Swimming and Diving Championships on Friday.

“We had lots of great additions to our program’s top-15 list tonight in the 400-yard individual medley and the 100-yard backstroke,” said Goldman Family Director of Men’s Swimming Ted Knapp. “I am very happy we were able to extend our lead but we know tomorrow needs to be our best morning of the meet.”

Stanford got the ball rolling with another big haul in the first event of the night, the 400-yard individual medley. Abrahm DeVine (3:42.20) shaved more than two seconds off his prelim time to finish second, while Curtis Ogren (3:41.43) took third. Maxwell Williamson (3:43.27) and Danny Thomson (3:46.61) scored valuable points in sixth and seventh place, respectively.
