TEMPE, Ariz. -- With three meets under their belts, both the men's and women's swimming and diving teams of Arizona State moved up in the national bi-weekly polls conducted by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA), released Thursday.

When the CSCAA's first poll was released Oct. 26 on the eve of ASU's 2000-2001 season, the men were ranked 13th receiving 99 votes. Thursday, they moved up to 11th, with 112 votes, after wins over UNLV (163-80, Oct. 27) and UC Santa Barbara (130-76, Nov. 11), as well as a respectable 140-103 loss to No. 6 USC (Nov. 10).

The women made a larger leap in the polls, moving up three spots from No. 19 (39 votes) entering the season to No. 16 (79 votes). The Sun Devil women are 1-2 on the season, but both losses came at the hands of national powerhouses.

November 10, the women lost to then-No. 11 UCLA by a 179-118 margin. Thursday, the Bruins exploded in the polls to the No. 1 ranking. The Sun Devils' other loss, Nov. 11, came at the hands of then-No. 5 USC, and went down to the final event before the Trojans prevailed 153-147. The Trojans dropped to No. 7 in the polls.

Both the men's and women's teams are in the middle of an almost three-week break from competition. December 1-3, both Sun Devil squads are scheduled to resume action at the Texas Invitational.
