After placing fourth at Pac-12s with a time of 6:18.07 in the 800 freestyle relay, ASU took the blocks on the first day in Austin, Texas seeded 16th. Sophomore Grant House has the fastest 200 freestyle time on the team, at 1:32.38, and led off the relay in 1:32.74. Sophomores Carter Swift and Evan Carlson followed, with freshman Liam Bresette anchoring.
The quartet jumped ahead of their seed, finishing 2nd in the heat, for a 9th-overall finish in the event. The 6:14.76 time was a three-second drop from the seed time, and came attached to a new school record as well as All-American honors for all four
