Stanchi claimed the 400 individual medley in 3:52.79, currently the 13th-fastest time in the country. Zach Cootes was fourth in 3:56.12 while Mickey Mackle finished fifth in 3:56.56.

Jack Jenner placed third in the 200 freestyle at 1:40.55 while Cootes finished fourth in the 100 backstroke, timed in 50.72.

Deiparine, Davies, John Hornacek and Shannon Fong combined for a fourth-place finish in the 200 medley relay (1:31.20) while Jenner, Austin Cunniff, Blake Faris and Dustin Bolt teamed for a fifth in the 800 freestyle relay (6:47.58).

The Cal Poly men are third in the team standings with 785.5 points. UC Santa Barbara leads with 1,236 points, with UC San Diego second at 834.5.
