TEMPE, Ariz. - The 11th-ranked Arizona State women's swimming team wrapped up their two-day meet today at the Hillenbrand Aquatic Center in Tucson, Ariz. Although official final team scores were not available, the results indicated a third place finish for the Sun Devils with 55 points. Arizona finished first with 133 while Wisconsin was second with 114.
