Dec. 6, 2002

AUSTIN, Texas -- The 20th-ranked Arizona State women's swimming and diving team stayed in fifth-place after the second day of competition at the Texas Invitational. �gnes Kov�cs again provided an excellent performance for the Sun Devils, as she became only the second ASU women's swimmer in school history to swim the 100 breaststroke in under a minute (59.92). She garnered the only first-place finish on the day for ASU. The school record is held by fellow Hungarian swimmer Beata Kaszuba (59.71, 1995).

In the diving pool, Trisha Tumlinson finished second in the 1-meter springboard with a 291.95, setting a new Sun Devil record in the process. She bested current teammate Jessica Stenson's 287.10 that was recorded last season.

In the 200 freestyle, Petra Banovic touched the wall in 1:48.70, which is the fastest time for ASU this season and an NCAA 'B' time. She finished fifth. In the same event, Florencia Szigeti finished 10th (1:49.06), which is also a 'B' standard and the second fastest time by a Devil this campaign.

The 200-medley relay squad managed a fourth-place finish and an NCAA consideration time (1:42.38). This was the fifth-fastest time in Sun Devil history. The 800 free relay team also notched an NCAA 'B' time (7:23.50) on their way to a fourth-place finish as well.
