AUSTIN, Texas -- Senior All-American Scott VonSchoff won the men's 200 yard freestyle in 1:36.75 as Arizona State's men's and women's swimming teams completed the second day of competition at the Texas Invitational Saturday at the Joe Jamail Swimming Center in Austin, Texas.

With one day of competition remaining, the 12th-ranked Sun Devil men sit in eighth-place with 143 points, while the No. 16 women are in tenth with 99.5 points. The men's 12-team field includes seven top-25 teams. Of the 13 women's swimming teams in the field, nine are ranked.

In earning the victory, VonSchoff -- who in ASU's three dual meets this season is undefeated through six individual races -- improved upon his previous career best of 1:37.01. VonSchoff also anchored ASU's 200 medley relay team Saturday, which in the morning swam the fifth-best preliminary time of 1:31.88, before being disqualified in the evening final.

Another top finisher for the men was senior All-American Otto Hinks, who captured third in the 100 breaststroke in 55.74. Freshman Rich Jacobs also scored points for ASU, taking 15th-place in the 400 individual medley with a time of 4:00.43.

The Sun Devil women were highlighted by the performances of junior All-American Riley Mants and junior Jennifer Lowe, who finished 12th and 13th respectively in the 100 breast. Mants' time of 1:04.54 was her second-best effort in the event this season, while Lowe's mark of 1:05.33 nipped her previous career best of 1:05.45.

Swimming in her first 400 IM of the season, junior All-American Sarah Baham took 15th in 4:24.49, the fastest time for a Sun Devil this season.

Both ASU teams will complete the Texas Invitational Sunday with the following events: 200 backstroke, 100 free, 200 breast, 200 butterfly, 1650 free and the 400 free relay.
