Wickensheimer lowered his own year-old school record in the 100 butterfly to :47.78 (from 48.12) during the prelims, earning an NCAA B cut time in the event. In the finals, Wickensheimer placed fifth in 47.91.

Troy Neklason was 13th in the 1-mete diving competition (271.5) which was held at the Air Force Academy at colorado Springs, Colo.
Emery scored in the 100 breaststroke by finishing 14th (:56:72).
"Our 200 free was on fire today," CSUB director of swimming Chris Hansen said. "Watching Dan Wickensheimer shatter his own school record with a time of 47.78 was really special for me. He has dedicated himself to this team for four years. This was a big time swim and he deserved every minute of it. We are in a fight with Hawaii and Denver, our divers and younger swimmers need to show up to play tomorrow in order for us to finish in the top five."
CSUB is in fifth (234.5), eight ahead of Hawaii for the spot. BYU (417) leads the team race.
