TEMPE, Ariz. ( -- Sun Devil swimming and diving competed well, but could not keep up with the highly-ranked (men No. 2, women No. 6) Golden Bears in the Pac-10 duel meet held in Berkeley, Calif. Friday. Arizona State University men's swimming fell to Cal 159-78 and the women were defeated 167-90.

On the women's side, sophomore Sarah Fischer (Boulder, Colo.) and senior Kathryn Hennessy (Kansas City, Mo.) finished first and second in the 1,000-yard freestyle respectively. Sophomore Caitlin Andrew (San Antonio, Texas) put forth another solid performance by winning the 100-yard butterfly and finishing second in the 100-yard freestyle and 100-yard backstroke. Freshman diver Erin Hobbs (Calgary, Alberta) recorded season-high scores in winning both the one-meter (280.65) and three-meter diving (281.84) events.

For the men, sophomore Lucas Azevedo (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) touched the wall in 9:09.59 in the 1,000-yard freestyle to move up to sixth place on ASU's top times list in school history. Azevedo also finished second in the 500-yard freestyle for the Sun Devils. Sophomore C.J. Nuess (Medical Lake, Wash.) finished in second place in the 200-yard backstroke and the 200-yard IM for ASU. Also recording second-place finishes for the Sun Devils were senior David Kolozar (Budapest, Hungary) and junior Leo Martins (Garanhuns-PE, Brazil) in the 200-yard butterfly and the 200-yard breaststroke respectively. Senior diver Brant Bingham (Mesa, Ariz) recorded a personal-best 369.52 to win the three-meter diving event.
