Feb. 28, 2009
The Arizona State women's swimming team saw two more school records during the final day of the 2009 Women's Swimming Pac-10 Championships. The Pac-10 Diving Championships also reached its end. The ASU women placed seventh with 564 points.
Juniors Ashton Aubry and Jamie Martinez each broke a school record. Martinez, who actually broke the record during the preliminaries, clocked in a time of 1:55.78 to grasp the new ASU 200 back record. Martinez' NCAA 'B' standard time bested Caitlin Andrew's 1:56.77 by nearly a full second.
Aubry had been inching closer and closer to the coveted 200 fly mark and finally reach the time. The Kansas native clocked in an NCAA consideration time of 1:56.37 to set the new ASU standard. The previous record, set by Sarah Baham, was a seven-year standing mark. The time was good enough for Aubry to finish sixth overall.
Freshman Jordyn Green improved on her 200 breast time. The freshman was the only Sun Devils to reach the championship final of two events. The Reno, Nev., native placed fourth in the 200 breast with a time of 2:11.30. The NCAA consideration mark moved her to third on ASU's all-time list.
Jen Beckberger swam a 49.49 in the 100 free to place 15th overall. Brittany Jumer finished ninth on the platform with 213.35 points. The Sun Devils closed the meet out with an NCAA consideration time of 3:19.57 in the 400 free relay to place fifth overall. The team of Beckberger, Perazzo, Caldwell and Haron earned not only an NCAA consideration time but also put them at fourth on ASU's all-time list.
