Prenot finished the meet with a Pac-12 title in the 400 IM, a second place finish in the 200 breaststroke and a third place finish in the 200 IM.

Also on Wednesday, Cal Poly freshman Sonny Fierro posted a top 10 finish in the 1,650 yard freestyle at 15 minutes, 27.62 seconds. He met the provisional standard in qualifying for the NCAA Championships (15:30.39).
