Women's Swim, Men's Dive Off to Pac-12 Championships

Feb 21, 2022

TEMPE, Ariz. – Return of the Pacs!

The postseason is officially here, and the Sun Devils will begin play at the Pac-12 Championship this week when the Women's Swim team spars with conference foes at the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way, Washington from February 23-26.

Schedules for the four-day event can be found here.

The Men's diving team, consisting of Zachory Lundgren and Thomas Wesche, will head down south for the Men's Pac-12 Diving Championships, held at the Hillenbrand Aquatic Center at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

Schedules for the four-day event can be found here.

Both events can be followed via and the Pac-12 Now app.

The Sun Devil Women's swim team is, after a strong showing in their regular season finale against Arizona weeks ago, poised to make plenty of noise at their first conference championship in two years.

Last time they were there, Emma Nordin captured her first Pac-12 title in the 500 freestyle with a nation-best and program-record time of 4:33.74. In this season alone, Nordin has set school records in the 1000 and 1650 free and has also posted the school's third-fastest time in the 500 free.

Lindsay Looney and Jade Foelske, the Sun Devils' electric one-two punch in the butterfly event, have teamed up to post the top-seven fastest times in program history in the 200 fly. In a mid-January intrasquad, Looney broke the school record.


  1. Lindsay Looney, 1:54.17 (1/14/2022)
  2. Jade Foelske, 1:55.36 (2020)
  3. Lindsay Looney, 1:55.39 (2020)
  4. Lindsay Looney, 1:55.49 (2020)
  5. Lindsay Looney, 1:55.50 (2/5/2022)
  6. Lindsay Looney, 1:55.74 (2020)
  7. Jade Foelske, 1:55.98 (2/5/2022)

The two have gone step-for-step with one another all season long, and are likely to continue that trend this coming week in Seattle.

Molly Batchelor, Natalia Fryckowska, Emma Gehlert, Erica Laning and Erin Milligan are a handful of other candidates who are likely to contend for podium-finishes in various events, after each tallied multiple wins throughout the regular season. Batchelor, Fryckowska, Laning and Milligan have served as a quartet of freestyle specialists for the Sun Devils, while Gehlert is the only freshman on the Women's team who has competed in every meet this season.

A month ago, head diving coach Marc Briggs brought on two mid-season transfers for the first additions to his diving program in sophomores Zachory Lundgren and Thomas Wesche.

Four weeks and a trio of meets later, Briggs' divers are up to speed and eager for a crack at their first conference championships.

Lundgren has already qualified for the Zone E Championships in both the 1-meter dive and platform dive. Wesche qualified for the Zone E Championships in the 3-meter dive. Both made their Sun Devil debuts against Stanford on January 21.
