TEMPE, Ariz. – The Sun Devil Swimming and Diving program has announced its schedule for the 2022-23 season, highlighted by five home meets and a regular season finale against the University of Arizona in Tempe.
The first chance for fans to see the new-look Sun Devils will be on Friday, September 23, when the team hosts its annual Maroon & Gold scrimmage at the Mona Plummer Aquatic Center. There will be free admission for the meet, which is slated to begin at 2 p.m.
The regular season will officially commence the following week, when both Sun Devil teams venture to The Peach State to go toe-to-toe with the University of Georgia and University of Missouri on September 30 and October 1 in Athens.
The Sun Devils' first action at home will take place Saturday, October 22, when they host the University of Wisconsin at 11 a.m.
The next three meets that will conclude the first half of the season all take place on the road – at USC (Friday, November 4, 1 p.m.), at UCLA (Women's team only, Saturday, November 5, 12 p.m.) and the Wolfpack Invite (Thursday, November 17-Saturday, November 19).
