Orcutt native Josh Prenot became a collegiate All-American in his first NCAA Championship final on Thursday during the opening day of the 2013 NCAA Men's Swimming and Diving Championships in Indianapolis.
Prenot, a freshman for two-time national champions California, finished fifth in the 200 yard IM final with a time of 1:42.62. The Orcutt native broke his personal best time by nearly two seconds. Stanford's David Nolan won with a time of 1:41.21.
The Golden Bears are in second place in the overall team standings with 123.5 points. Michigan leads the team standings with 153 points, while Auburn sits in third with 112.5 points.
Prenot, who is seeded fourth in the 400 IM with a time of 3:41.36, swims in the prelims on Friday morning. The final is in the evening session.
The 19 year old Prenot already owns the school record in the event. He set the Pac-12 Meet record in the event earlier this month when he finished first to capture his first individual conference crown.
