The men’s and women’s swim and dive teams fell to Arizona State University this weekend; the men fell 138–158, and the women lost 94–201.
“It was good to be down here in the sun and compete against a quality team,” BYU head coach John Brooks said in a press release. “The ASU girl’s team is ranked in the top 20, and our girls swam well against them. The guys did well even though some were battling being sick. Jordan (Fletcher) swam well today, and Shawn Western swam well in the 1000 yard also.”
The men’s team snagged some solid individual wins, mainly Fletcher, freshman Preston Jenkins and sophomore Hayden Palmer. Jenkins swept the two backstroke events, Fletcher won the 50 free and Palmer took the 200 IM.
The women made remarkable placings in the 50 free by taking second, third and fourth place. Freshman Alexandria Sorensen finished second with a time of 24.22, sophomore Andrea Grant took third with a time of 24.26 and senior Taryn Toolson Lewis was fourth with a time of 24.33.
At the diving pool, sophomore Nicholas Suder placed second in both the 1m and 3m dives.
This weekend the women’s team hosts Oregon State on Friday, and both the men and women will host the University of Denver on Saturday.
