AUSTIN, Texas -- Individuals from Arizona State's 12th-ranked men's and 16th-ranked women's swimming teams competed in day-one of the three day Texas Invitational at the Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center in Austin, Texas Friday.

Junior All-American Bo West was the leading individual scorer for the men, placing 14th in the 500 freestyle with a time of 4:34.87. West also swam the opening leg of the 200 free relay, as the Sun Devils took ninth-place by winning the `B' final. Their time of 1:21.95 would have been good enough for seventh had they qualified for the `A' final Friday morning.

The women's 200 free relay team finished seventh in 1:35.39, their second fastest effort this season. Sophomore Claire Hedenskog anchored the relay before tying for a 13th-place finish in the 50 free. Her time of 23.77 was just three-hundredths of a second shy of matching her personal best.

With two days of competition to go, ASU's men are in 10th-place with 45 points. The Sun Devil women are also in 10th, with 53.5 points.

ASU's swimming teams are up against tough competition this week. The men's field includes No. 1 Texas, No. 5 Arizona, No. 7 California, No. 9 Michigan, No. 19 SMU, No. 22 Harvard and No. 25 Wisconsin, plus unranked Nebraska, Kansas and TCU. The women's field is made up of No. 2 UCLA, No. 3 Arizona, No. 4 Stanford, No. 5 California, No. 10 Texas, No. 13 Michigan, No. 12 Wisconsin, No. 15 SMU and No. 18 Minnesota, plus unranked Nebraska, Rice and TCU.
