Nov. 11, 2006

Taking to the road to being a challenging weekend of Pacific-10 Conference action, ArizonaStateUniversity's women's swimming and diving teams fell to the UCLA Bruins Friday, 178-116.


The Sun Devils (2-2), were once again led by the efforts of All-America junior Caitlin Andrew, and also received solid efforts from several of the team's newcomers. Andrew earned victories in the 50 free (23.56) and the 100 fly, with an NCAA 'B' qualifying time of 54.44. Andrew, joined by sophomore Jen Beckberger, senior Abra Armour and freshman Jess Perazzo, secured a win in the 200 free relay (1:34.12).


For the first time in the young season, the ASU women competed in the 200 IM, and the Sun Devils swept the event against UCLA, as the order of finish featured freshman Ashley Evans (2:05.44), senior ChristineCreek and junior Amanda Gillespie to aid ASU's overall scoring effort.   


Junior Sarah Fischer recorded a scoring effort in the 1000 free, posting an ASU season-best finish of 10:09.96.


Seeing her first action of the year, freshman Mirela Kardasevic recorded the team's best 200 back time of the season (2:05.15).  Fellow freshman Ashton Aubry added a scoring effort and a team season-best effort in the 200 fly (2:04.89).


The Sun Devil divers also competed against the Bruins, highlighted by a second-place finish for senior Cassidy Farwell in the 3m springboard, in which she recorded an ASU season-best score of 296.18.


ASU's women's team will next travel to USC to compete against the Trojans on Sat., Nov. 11.
