Since its opening in 1981, the Mona Plummer Aquatic Center is regarded as one of the nation’s finest outdoor swimming and diving facilities. The aquatic center consists of three pools: an Olympic-sized 50-meter by 25 yard competition pool; a 25-yard, 18’ deep diving well; and 25-yard eight-lane warm-up pool. Other amenities include three platforms, four springboards, moveable bulkhead and team room. With seating for over 1,000 spectators, the facility was revitalized with a $1.2 million renovation in 2012.
Arizona State swimmers embody the term “student-athlete”. In May 2019, the CSCAA announced that both the Sun Devil men and women earned Scholar All-America honors for Spring 2019, marking the 12th consecutive semester dating back to fall 2013 that both squads have found a spot on the team. In spring 2019, the women posted their third-straight GPA improvement.
Sun Devil swimmers & divers are high achievers with big goals in and out of the pool and our Office of Student-Athlete Development, led by Natalie Thackrah, helps them achieve those goals. If a student is falling behind or wants an edge in getting ahead, there are a wealth of opportunities available to them including free and unlimited tutoring, learning specialists, networking opportunities.
Between the men’s and women’s swimming teams, Arizona State has garnered 68 individual Pac-12 champions, 55 national champions, and 215 All-Americans. This winning tradition continues as the Sun Devils consistently set new school records and improve in both conference and national competition.
