Cal cruises to second straight DMN Classic title

For the first time since 1987, SMU finished last in the 21st annual Dallas Morning News Classic on Friday and Saturday night.

No. 8 California defended its crown from last season by upsetting No. 6 Florida. Cal’s 352 points was the most ever scored in the event. SMU finished with 234.

SMU senior Brice Dumais finished second in the three-meter diving competition with a score of 350.7. Dumais’ finish qualified him for the NCAA National Competition in the event. His second-place finish was the highest that any Mustang finished in an event.

The men’s swim team (3-1) had a tough weekend, losing to Florida 128-104 the night before. Dumais placed first in three-meter diving and SMU’s Jonathon Newton placed first with a 20.63 time in the 50 free. Florida responded by winning the next three events. Newton ended the streak with a first place finish in the 100 free style with a time of 45.18. Up next for SMU is a dual meet against TCU at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 23 at Perkins Natatorium.
