LOS ANGELES — Connor Greene just missed out on breaking his second record in as many days.

Greene broke the school record with a 56.83 at last week's Bay Valley Conference championships. He was just off that pace with a 57.31 on Friday, finishing second to Modesto's Tim Richard. Luke Baum was ninth in a 58.58.
The MC duo joined Ryan Randall and Kolby Ellett to place 10th in the 200 medley relay as the Blue Devils turned in another solid day.
